I think an Octa Lune Automatique in platinum would match up nicely with your CO.
Coincidentally there was a Automatic Lune display piece (no movement) at the AD today. I like it a lot, in fact it is one of my initial requested pieces. The AL reminds me of the 5712 with the asymmetrical layout and how well the components work well together on the dial. I would love to have it.

I had a Divine 36mm ordered for my wife. But right at the time it was supposed to be delivered, the Montres cancelled the order. It is just like the AL but with a different dial.

IMHO, the 3 of the quintessential Journes are the CS, CO and the resonance. They all tell just the time and the beauty is in the chronometre movt in each timepiece.

That 36mm is a very nice size for my wrist, and the Divine has an interesting dial. I kind of prefer the "guilloche" of the AL though. No bad choice here.

Yep black label CS. It’s incredible.

As for the blue QP, I’ve been photographed with it but belongs to a close collector friend. He will probably post here after reading :).

That QP is really special. On my list.

Regarding BL. Can you help clarify if it is only up to two of each models per boutique? Or two per models for the entire annual FPJ? For example, will the LA Boutique gets two CS BL or is it two spread across the entire production.

Either case, it is probably unobtainium for the mortals. But have heard both statements and would like to see which is the case. Only the part about “two” is consistent.

This is the ultimate mystery. I understood it as two per year total but also heard two per boutique per year. The brand direct wasn’t the source of either statement for me.

Chronomètre Optimum, Automatique Lune or QP?

Heyo!

Regarding the OP’s question I’d vote CO first then QP. Both wonderful pieces.

Thanks for the advice! I have bought the CO last week and loving it everyday.

Two per model per boutique sounds like a lot especially for models like Resonance and Tourbillion. Since some ADs can also get black edition.

But two per model per year for the entire run would really make it completely out of question for anyone other than a large collector. (Like you :-)

It is indeed a mystery.

Ha no worries. I now have the lune as well in the mix. The trilogy is a great starting goal for any Journe collector. From there, so many more options to go into. An automatic Journe isn’t all that bad when compared to winding the previous gen Res. Definitely have tougher fingertips as a result.

I’m with you two per year per boutique retires a lot of the annual builds for them. So that doesn’t seem right.

Either way, it’s special and now on my wrist from all this talk.

It is 2 per boutique per year. There are 10 boutiques so a maximum of 20 are made per year. They’re also reserved for previous Journe owners.

That being said it does not mean they will make 20 of each model every single year.

This blade label and the jade are my 2 favourite versions I've seen of the CS.

The black on Pt is such a classic look.

The eSpace ADs also can order black label, so it will add a few more?

That’s correct! But I’ve been told that just because there’s a max of 2 per boutique doesn’t mean they’ll get 2! The resonance BL is much harder to get than the CS BL for example!

Actually at this stage, I am good with any Journe; let alone BL. It is not meant for mortals like me.
