F.P. Journe: Can you really manipulate the market to liking a watch?

I have heard so many times that FPJs rise is due to manipulation. I agree they did get a lot of help on the supply side. But can you manipulate people to buy a watch due to rarity? I do not see stars or athletes wearing FPJs. I just want to give credit to FPJ also.

F.P. Journe: Thank you!

I have been a Journe fan since the early 2000, but was only able to purchase my first Journe last year. It was perfect timing. Because after i got mine, prices started flying. I never bought it for the investment. It was a passion and dream purchase. Thank you for this report. Francis

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Bvlgari

I thought bulgari is an independent brand because of its strong releases the past years. I did not know its under LVMH. I agree Panerai, IWC and VC together with JLC are looking more like fashion brands than serious watches IMO. Yet these are brand with rich history. Hublot, Tag and Zenith are doing

Audemars Piguet: Whatever happened to the Tradition Line?

Hi, I was just thinking about the tradition line (square with curve angles) that AP release a few years ago. Is it still in production? Rather than release the code, hoping they would fix the tradition line. I completely forgot about it but I recently saw it online. The time only and perpetual calen

Audemars Piguet: Love the movement

The real reason I am interested in getting a jumbo is because of the movement. The previous jumbo and other models with the same movement did not interest me. This current jumbo really speaks to me. However, it is very hard to acquire through normal channels. I just got depressed due to the complain

Audemars Piguet: Did you use a winder?

Hi, There is a suggestion in a post below that the winder cost the problem. Just want to know if you used a winder? I know that even you used a winder, the watch must not have any difficulties. It is out of curiosity that i am asking. Many thanks.

Audemars Piguet: Time in service

How long did the service take for the rotor? I usually get simple time only watches but have started collecting chrono. I just had my Patek annual chrono and legend of Arnold roo serviced. Each took 3 months for service. This jumbo is a dream of mine but I didn't know that movement is delicate.

Audemars Piguet: Question on AP Jumbo Reliability

Hi, I read in a post here that many are having problems with the 2120 movement, is this true? Since, It is only a time only movement with no second hand, what is the reason for sending it back for service? Is the time off by 5 minutes or more? Or does it stop completely? Or is it more on the power r
