Flashback: Vacheron Constantin FiftySix Complete Calendar in front of the 96 channel SSL mixing console in Abbey Road Studio.
See this watch and the others in the collection at the VC exhibition with Cortina Watch at Paragon from tomorrow.
The Maîtres du Temps Chapter Three - a charming sight put together by two master watchmakers. The signature rollers and rose gold case by Andreas Strehler; the silver guilloche dial and the Caliber SHC03 movement by Kari Voutilainen. A gentle push on the crown hides the dial panels and reveal the rollers that would unveil the day/night indicator and second timezone. Truly an elegant timepiece in whatever form you may want it to be. Swipe to see the watch in action 👉🏻 #ForSale

Only 54 second-generation (2005-2010) FP Journe Resonance watches were ever made in 40mm with a rose gold case and white gold dial - but this particular Resonance is even rarer than that. The caliber number engraved on the movement tells the tale. As @thejourneguy recently noted, the caliber 1499.2 was only produced for a short time between 2005 and 2006.
When Montres Journe SA abandoned brass and introduced gold movements in 2005, the gold version of the Resonance movement was rebranded as the caliber “1499.2” (with a redesigned barrel bridge that hid the ratchet wheels underneath the bridge so as not to detract from the gold aesthetic). At some point in 2006, that caliber number was changed again to become the “1499.3” with the introduction of a new power reserve. The “1499.2” engraving on the top right of the movement therefore dates this particular Resonance to that brief one year period when the Resonance contained the 1499.2 movement (the shortest production run of any Resonance caliber). While the early Resonances with brass movements continue to be highly-valued for their scarcity, it’s a little-known fact that the Resonances containing the gold “1499.2” movement are apparently even more scarce - and that the scarcest of them are the ones in rose gold cases.
