To those celebrating. To those of you who don’t, happy holidays. I wish everyone of you that your wishes may come true. Even if the horological ones have become more difficult to achieve this year.
I’m celebrating a very casual Christmas with my little family at the summer house. As I’m just wearing an old beater (no Journe) I’m posting what I personally think is THE most beautiful FP Journe watch I have seen.
It’s a throwback to the epic Resonance exhibition in Geneva in 2020. There where many spectacular dials on display. In fact most of those ever made. Special engravings, ruthinium ect... The one that really stole my heart was a 38 mm Resonance with a regular Rose gold dial and a well worn platinum bracelet. The watch used to belong to the famous watch journalist Gabriel Tortella. It is now in the collection of the manufacture.
Not the most spectacular in the room, as I said, but it just oozes soul and character. Being well worn made it even more charming. A definite vintage character. I think the warm rose dial in combination with all that platinum gives it an otherworldly beauty. Add then the significance of being an early Resonance wrist watch and you have a true masterpiece.
Merry Christmas my friends
