Just Picked Up My First F.P. Journe: Octa Lune

Hi everyone. A quick thanks to everyone who replied to a couple of my recent threads. I've been a fan of the brand for a few years now and it finally felt like the right time to dive in. I spent some time deciding between new and older references, and with all things considered I landed on a new piece. It's a platinum 40mm reference. Luckily I was able to find it locally and I just received it today. I picked this khaki color strap and also a navy strap for some versatility. It's such a charming watch that's playful with the light. Hope everyone is having a great start to the weekend!

Beautiful and a modern classic. Get a bunch of straps and it'll be like having a handful of watches, it really changes the look!
