... on the next auction in HK. I spotted a Grand & Petite Sonnerie with Minute Repeter for sale!

Wow I bet you thought its amazing someone has already bought a a new one from FPJ and already put it up for sale?! NO! Its an old Piaget one from 1996 that was designed by FPJ. It looks familiar in style from the pictures!

I handled the watch about a year ago. It is pretty nice. The repeater strikes very quickly and sounds just ok. It's small, 36mm I think. At 38mm I may have considered it. The other problem is who services it? Does Piaget have people capable of doing it justice? That was rhetorical, I really don't know the answer.

Anyway, it's certainly a cool piece of horological history given the success that Journe has had.
