Default F.P. Journe Automatique Réserve

Well, wife's surprise. Retirement gift? I don't know, but surely, sweet thoughts.

I have not a new watch for more than 5 years and the ever faithful Apple Watch 3 is now my daily wear. Thought my love for watches had died, until I saw this. Oh well, would it start my interest again to start looking? Well, NO! But a gift, it's different. Anyway, the dial colour is something I've not seen before. The first is taken from FP's review, the second, home.

Yeah, anything that's free is always good. More so from my better half, a clear indication that she appreciate me being a good boy all these while, cleaning the house, driving her around, and of course, be a good listener (and dream while she talk away) and stopped my gear chasing for 2 years and going.

Seriously, I am touched by her gift. Cheers!

Thanks Doug. The dial colour is indeed different. The longer one looks at it, the more soothing and attractive it gets. Sort of grows on you.

One hell of a watch, and an incredibly generous gift.
