F.P. Journe Astronomic Omega Seamaster Replica
"While I was returning to Geneva from Montreux Jazz Festival (Montreux Jazz Festival), [my son] was staying with my mother. He called me and said that he had drawn a watch. He said, "That's fantastic!" Journe remembers that he was about 14-15 years old.
"When I got to my mum's, I asked him where he had put the watch.IWC Replica Watches
He replied that he threw it out because he didn't think he could draw watches as good as me so he threw away. The drawing is crumpled behind the bin when I get to it. I took it with me and kept it there for many years.
The sketch was not forgotten by him though. Journe said, "[My son] had drawn an aperture with Rolex Submariner Replica Watches
the sun inside. This was the starting point for my design. It wasn't meant to be this watch at first. I wanted it to be simpler because it was 2005-2006 when I released the Grande Sonnerie. It wasn't my intention to replace it.
Journe returned to an earlier creation that he had made for a collector Omega Seamaster Replica
in 1987. This pocket watch became the foundation of the Astronomic Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica. The unique tourbillon on the pocket watch indicated mean and sidereal times, along with equation of time. It also had a full calendar and power reserve.
The Astronomic Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica has a dual-dial layout, which works well for a watch of this size. The watch's versatility allowed it to be read and readable without sacrificing elegance and comfort. Although the watch has 758 components it looks very different. The case houses the 18K rosegold calibre 1619 and measures 44mm in diameter. It is just 13.8mm thick.
