    I realize how many stacks that F.P Journe is, but it does nothing for me aesthetically.

    which two do you have, i have been thinking whether i should go with a spring drive model or a mechanical. the power indicator on the SD somewhat bothers me (I really hope they make one without it in the future) however i really like the smooth sweeping second hand on the SD watches.

    Hi Iroh,

    I have these two:

    One mechanical, one SD. The chrono on the SD was always going to be a bit busy, and I rather like the power reserve! PR do work well on some models - see my IWCs:

    Beautiful watches...does the crown seem a little large on the one on the left?

    Indeed a real beauty. FP Journe watches are really sublime.

    Thanks for the kind words. The original watch being a pilot's watch was designed to be used with gloves,so this harks back to the original watch :) It makes for easy winding and IMO is one of the defining features of the big pilot
