FINALLY the Chronometre Souverain is back on my wrist as it has returned from service. 

A while back, I was was unfortunate at dropped the watch on the floor. I had changed straps but not made completely sure the pin was fastened properly. So here is a word of caution. Please check, with more than just a light pull when you change straps. Luckily all that happened was the the seconds hand came loose but I decided to get a full service as it was 8 years since I had it serviced last time. 
This tuesday I set up the the watch and put it back on the wrist. I had forgotten how good this watch is. Seriously! Right now I feel like this is my all time favorite watch. Especially in this configuration. to ME it feels PERFECT. Perfect fit on the wrist. Perfect size and proportions. Classic look but with an asymmetric dial layout. A beatful and lasting design... and the timing...well....0 seconds deviation since tuesday morning. It is now friday afternoon!!!! THAT is F.P. Journe.... Yes it is perfect and I still love it  as much as the day I got it. A watch for life.

Lets see what Journes you are wearing this weekend. Ill be wearing my CS. probably play with some straps but I will e much more careful.

Glad that your trusty CS is back from service, and functioning as if it had never missed a step. I once dropped a friend’s CB on the first day that he took delivery of it, back in 2015. It didn’t take long for them to repair it (a screw had come loose off of the movement). Very happy to hear that it’s chronometry is perfect. I always look for that in...

Heeyy my dear friend. So good to see you:-) You have so many ice pieces up your sleeve…. I remembered you had it in red gold?! I didn’t remember this one. Isn’t it just an amazing watch. No nonsense, no hype. To me, the best simple manual wind watch. All brands included. Have a great weekend , Mike 😘

Dropping an FPJ is rite of passage.

LOL. You are probably right. In the moment it happened it felt more like my life passing before my eyes… HAGWE

I dropped one at the boutique and the manager gave me a death stare! They are super nice there, but that was awkward! They should put carpet or a soft mat under the spot where people try stuff on!

I dropped my CB twice. The second time was the day I got it back from service for the first drop. I admitted nothing the second time.

An in-depth and on the wrist review on the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner.

As you know, the Jaeger Lecoultre Polaris Memovox Mariner was issued one year ago, in September 2020, more precisely. I have always been surprised by the timing issue of a diving watch by Jaeger Lecoultre. Indeed, to me, it would have been more appropriate to release the first watches at the beginning of the summer, or late spring, to offer the possibility to their owners to enjoy it in the best time of the year, and not just after summer... So, it took me ten months before receiving one, on loan, for an ...
