    That's great, but I prefer my Shine-O-Graph Montblinding. Strangely, they discontinued this one.

    Not as ugly the Jacob & Co monstrosity a friend of mine bought. It is HUGE and has the world map set in white and black diamonds on the dial. It is the ugliest thing I have ever seen.

    Sounds horrible. All right, so not quite as ugly as sin, then?

    What a beautiful watch, stilmacher! I own a way less complicated Jaeger, the Master Control:

    I like how the movement is poking out at the bottom, as if the beautiful art of horology is the reason someone would buy that piece.

    That tourbillon is one of the most expensive watch complications and is actually not the movement. It is was created to counteract the force of gravity on the movement's operation.

    Well, the tourbillon is part of the movement and also serves as a second hand (most, but not all, tourbillons rotate once per minute). I'm really surprised to see this watch. I thought Jacob pretty much only did quartz and nothing high end mechanical. Does anyone know who's movement he's using? Lastly, I know it would be lost on the jeweler who put the 'b' in subtle, but the tourbillon does not need to be seen. Patek's are visible only from the display back - but they put the word Tourbillon on the dial , so go figure.

    Looks nice to me. Only buy what you can afford. Looks like it only can measure to 30 minutes, if that's enough for you. I sometimes time a few hours, so think about what you need a chronograph for.

    I don't even need the chrono function haha - Just think it looks nice.

    Found some old watches in my grandfather's jewelry box. None are, to my knowledge, of any remarkable quality or make, but I had time so I thought I'd take a few pictures.

    codered, i think the journe is a classic or at least is going to be. was journe the first to design a watch in that style? i noticed the lange 1 and the glashutte pano series share similar designs. perhaps it was designed after lange?

    The way i understand it is that the movement of the FPJ is unique in that it can accomodate a lot of other movements w/out increasing the thickness of the watch. It also has a 7 day power reserve and is extremely accurate due to the constant spring compression. The newer models have an all gold movement (the only manu i believe) and that really ups the ante in terms of $$$, the brass movements like mine have become very hard to find. i just got lucky due to a connection in HK and snapped it up. Good chance that it will be a real winner in the long run though. Thx.
