F.P. Journe Resonnance - the 2019 edition

this is the final edition of the Resonance, only produced this year.

How do you like it? compared to the older versions? 

I like it more and more. I really like that the subdials are printed in blue and I like the simpler design of of the new dials. In fact Im thinking Im beginning to prefer the simpler graphics. This version is obviously meant to be used for two timezones with the 24h dial on the left. However, I much prefer the hands to be in symmetry. Even when I travel with my Resonance I keep both the dials set to local time. Its just how I prefer it. That is purely a personal preference though. I can see how it can make a useful tool for people who travel a lot.

Still haven’t gotten over the fact that one is 12 and the other is 24... not very sync...

I agree It's a nice homage to the original but just not the same...

i also prefer the first as its the resoanace phenomenon that interets me about it. I think this one is a more realistic take on the watch as a "travel watch watch" than the Parking Meter dial, however.

Mm right I see your point - but I thought the resonance was not intended to be a dual time zone watch right? Although it certainly could be used as one :))

Right ;-) I guess the master changed his view on that with this one. I can actually understand why he said that when the Resonance came out. The context was that many where sceptical if it worked and no one had seen a Resonance wrist watch before. It would have been too easy to neglect it as just a watch with two time zone...

Im basically the same However Im beginning to see it as a way to utilize the watch as more of a useful "instrument" rather than the expression of the Resonance phenomenon.

Also very much missing the 38mm versions... sad.  
ChristianDK September 19th, 2019-21:36
Where do I sign :-)

Am counting on you and the journe guy to give this feedback to the master :)))  No message body

I have said it. His reply was that 38 mm don’t sell.

Vintage Rolex Booklets - Spotting the fakes

Vintage Rolex booklets are great part of a full set. It adds another dimension to how the watch was intended to be used. The booklets are half owners manual and half advertising presentations. Sometimes we are lucky to find full sets from original owners and those are the standards that we go by.
