An interview with F.P. Journe

A bit refreshing as the guy seems more humble than most.

Knew they're watches were exclusive; but, didn't realize their total historical production has only been 12,000 pieces. Ever.

Wow. Rarely do these things happen.

Journe is the Baron Mikel Scicluna of the watch world (by that I mean he's really who he's billed to be - Scicluna was the rare pro wrestler who not only used his real name, but actually was from the Isle of Malta).
