2012 – I was on a bit of a tear for F.P. Journes. I had a Chronometre Souverain (regret I sold it) and a Reserve de Marche (bought it and sold it quite quickly).
What I have always been interested in are smaller watches, and at the time, the 36mm Octa Divine in particular, technically part of the ladies’ collection. F.P. Journe didn’t make very many of them and I had certainly never come across any in the wild. Eventually, while I was in New York trying to set up The Armoury Tribeca, I found a dealer in California that had a second-hand one available. The price was okay so I bought it."
