Thank you!

I told my AD this is the best medicine for my Covid (I can't go out to collect the Resonance today because I'm in the middle of an infection, though I'm alright with mild symptoms). Looking forward to the end of my quarantine!

Huge congrats! I expressed interest in a CO about a year ago, fingers crossed I can get an allocation in 2024. It's by far my favorite Journe model.

While I was visitting the boutique the last time, the awesome sales person was nice enough to show me a RQ in platinum, absolutely amazing watch. If I get the CO I might just have to go for the RQ as my next FPJ aswell

I hope you get the CO. It's one of my favourite watches for sure. I like everything about it.

This is my AD's subtle way of telling me I have no chance of getting the RRCC2.

Yes it is easy to be in their interest list but the final approval is the issue. I believe they have identified all the elite clients and lucky people whom they will give this watch to. A few years back, they used RRCC as a gift to thank JCB. JCB said he cant even get the watch from Akrivia himself, and was ecstatic when he received the watch as a gift with special engraving for him. What a day it must have been for him.

Yep, and now with this RRCC2 reduced quantity (by half I believe), despite the price increase of 2x... The line would be longer... Good luck Michael! If you get it, pics needed

This is unbelievable. Your AD must really love you. A friend of mine just got told that 2030 is the ETA and you got it in a year. Do you own the AD?

This is not a half bad consolation prize. Now is the FPC or the Astronomic your next ask?

I am still praying to the FPJ god (and boutique) that I can get a TV before I turn 90...

Yeah it's amazing. I got both the CO and RQ within 8 months. Both are exact specifications (40mm RG) I asked for. I definitely got lucky but yet couldn't be happier.

Next one is probably the repetition souveraine because the tourbillion (42mm) and astronomic (44mm) are too large for me. On off I may buy the other journes in RG.

The repeater with sapphire dial would be awesome.

Did you have a chance to try the Tourbillon? I was concerned with the 42mm size too but upon trying it on, it does not wear big due to the way the lugs slope away. But may be it is good that you are not interested or I would have to wait another few years for my allocation.

Yes I tried and the lugs of the TV are too long for my wrist.

You got the RQ before me.
