I've never owned a Journe, but as a few people I've known that owned them had various issues requiring repeat visits tot the repair center, and each eventually tired of that and sold them. One of the former owners said, "They are beautiful but unreliable. So make sure you put $$$ aside for service issues once its off warranty." I like some of their simpler designs, but for the kind of money their watches cost who wants to have the watch going back and forth to repair centers rather than having it get wrist time. So for that reason alone, I'd rather have a Lange, Patek, or something else that will spend more time on my wrist than the repair center. Hey Medtech, Glad to hear you are enjoying your 15202. I love mine and much like yours, mine has hardly left my wrist since I got it.
