Sure, this time of year, you’re going to have all sorts of gift guides popping up (and, as a matter of fact, we’ve published more than a few). Or, you might just be looking for interesting reviews of new watches (again, we’ve got those). But for those for whom the reading of things is best left to assistants, well, then point them at this offering we just became aware of.
As you can tell from the photo up at the top, what’s on offer here is the sublimely superb F.P. Journe Chronometre Bleu (really, read up on the watch – there’s some wonderful stuff hiding under that deceptively simple blue dial). But, you say, JUST a watch is simply not enough? Not even one with a pedigree like this? Well, hold my beer, fam – Paddle8 is ready to just recklessly rearrange your guano.
You see, along with this watch, they’re also bundling in a tour of the very place your watch was built – the F.P. Journe Manufacture. You’ll need to arrange your own travel and lodging accommodations, but once you’re there, you’ve got a whole day in what is sure to be much like the Willy Wonka movie (the original, not the Depp remake), at least in my fever dream imagining.
If you’re not in the grasp of the dreams, and you’ve got access to the funds, a simple payment of just $60,000 will get you all set up for an amazing watch. Sure, it’s with a premium, but it’s just not anyone who gets to visit the manufacture. And if that’s you, well, write us up a visit report, eh? paddle8.com
