This new service from F.P. Journe is something we would love to see from Rolex, IWC, Hublot, AP, Breitling and other Swiss brands. Basically FPJ are buying up some of their pre-owned watches, giving them a complete refurb, if they need it, and then selling them via their boutique network with a three year warranty. Yes, we know, Rolex would never do that because they just wanna starve the market to keep demand at Glastonbury ticket levels, but hey, we can dream.
Here’s the word from FPJ;
The Patrimoine Service offers the F.P.Journe collectors the opportunity to acquire a timepiece from past collections that are no longer in production. When the opportunity arises, F.P.Journe purchase their own rare watches and restore them as new. They then become available upon request in the F.P.Journe Boutiques and qualify for a new 3-year sales warranty.
