Send Us Your Questions For François-Paul Journe: F.P. Journe And Quill & Pad Celebrate 10 Years Of Journe Boutiques With Special Collector Q&A
Have you ever wanted to ask François-Paul Journe, one of the world’s greatest living watchmakers, anything? Anything at all?
Well, here’s your chance.
Quill & Pad is offering you the opportunity to have your question(s) asked during a live Q&A session on October 28 in the brand’s Miami boutique. No taboos, just anything you ever wanted to know will be answered by the famous watchmaker.
Your questions might be technical, about the future as he sees it, or anything else in the industry – including the just-announced Patrimoine program in which F.P. Journe purchases watches from out-of-production collections to restore and update them before re-offering them for sale with guarantee.
And, if you’re a real enthusiast you can even book a seat in the room with François-Paul Journe and attend the Q&A session live.
Another enthusiast will also be present – and in fact representing Quill & Pad and our readers’ questions: The Journe Guy, who will enlighten us with insightful glimpses into the mind of François-Paul Journe.
The Journe Guy (aka Osama S) entered the world of horology back in December 2012 and was introduced to F.P. Journe just nine months of horological gestation later.
“My first encounter was pure chance,” he recalls. “I tried on my first Chronomètre Bleu and decided it was the best thing I had ever worn within the first three seconds on my wrist. Since then, not a day goes by that I have not researched Journe for numerous hours!”
He has a real love for watches in general and a passion for F.P. Journe in particular. “I strive to literally become THE ‘walking Journe encyclopedia’ to share my passion with others around me,” he laughs.
His Instagram account is perhaps “the most official unofficial” F.P. Journe Instagram or social media page in existence; it is solely dedicated to F.P. Journe timepieces.
In just three years he has gone from being a die-hard fan to a friend of both the brand and the man. Maybe it’s because he sleeps to the sound of the ticking remontoir in his Chronomètre Optimum.
You don’t have to be that die-hard to take part; just let us know if you are interested in attending the session or place any questions you might have in the comments below.
We will publish a resume of the questions and answers following the live event.
