FP Journe Appreciation Thread, an Evolution.

I have grown to really appreciate this brand and the watchmaker.

Here are a couple of the reasons, the Chrono Bleu & the steel Resonance.


share ‘em if you got ‘em.

Took a while for me to comprehend the line as it is quite a departure from the traditional. The process dragged me right in.

I'm visiting this thread every day. The rose gold CS models have been on my radar for awhile now. Having a tough time deciding between the printed dial and the raised indices. Beautiful timepiece

Thank you very much. Luckily there is no bad decision with either version so go with the one that sings to you the most!

My CB. Occasionally, I put on the caramel strap, but prefer the dark blue for the majority of the time. Mine is an earlier version, 1XX, which has been flawless.

I would go with the gold applied indices, very classy. Either is great though.

The hour markers are not painted nor applied on the gold dialed CS. Mr. Journe would never take such an easy route with his dials (as evidenced by the CB, as well). The dials are embossed to create a raised surface that is then polished.
