Innovative … Thanks for sharing, very innovative way to display the time. Funnily enough was reading on Vacheron Constantin « heures sautantes » and see certain similarity with the triangular marker pointing to the minutes around the case. The hours presentation with ...

My pleasure. thank you for your input. I think you have a point that it is not super intuitive. However, Im not the one to tell how he could have done better - given the challenge. I suppose one would need to "learn" the sequence and then it makes sense. Perhaps a bit like sign language.

Thanks my friend for sharing the interesting news (and watch! ;-) Many of these unique pieces by the 54 participating brands are already available at the official Only Watch site -- the interested reader may view them at: Only Watch - the official website Certainly an unusual watch by FPJ, which will attract lots of attention! On a simple/humorous mathematical note, glad that the hours to display were 12, because with 33 or more, the "complex challenge" would have been mat...

Thanks Thanks for bringing-up the point of « up to 32 « as it gave me the opportunity to reminisce probabilities and stat classes. A bit like crosswords and sudoku. Must confess I spent the (full) last 5 minutes trying to compute c(5,0) , c(5,1) … c(5,5) and com...

My pleasure, and the math is correct! ;-)) Here's a simpler way to compute that sum and arrive at 32 (I'm writing it quickly as I'm sure you'll understand it given the math you already wrote ;-) It follows from the following small theorem/observation: Observation: In your notation, the sum c(N,0) + c(N,1) + ... + c(N,N) equals 2^N ("2 raised to the N"), for any N. (Begin proof: Any given element either belongs to a subset or it doesn't, giving you two choices per element. Hence, the total number of cho...

Thanks … these were the days Thanks for the reminder and the trip down the memory lane…. it brings me back on time, when the purity of math & sciences was reigning (instead of tactics, incentive management and realpolitik). On the other hand, at that time neither FPJ, PP, VC nor AP w...

Yes, this is not what you associate with F.P.Journe typically except when it comes to the Vagabondage line... Which was a playful attempt to display time in unusual ways. The design languale here is something entirely different tough. thank you for your valuable input Fab! If anyone here would work on the sequence it would have to be you, of course. LOL

Ahhh vagabondage … especially V1? If I recall the vagabondage 1 was the version with rotating pointer for the minute and a flying hour displayed « inside » (the window of the minutes mark, a bit like the AP?) Probably made of « unobtainablium » today but sweet memory if my memory serves m...

Our dear Im6 was faster than me on this Reverso Hokusai. So let's come back to this one. The Reverso Tribute Enamel - Hokusai ‘Kirifuri Waterfall’ is the second Tribute to Hokusai paid by Jaeger-Lecoultre to this artist. Indeed, in 2018, we had a first one, which is famous as several brands paid homage to Hokusai and his well known " Great wave of Kanagawa ".
