In 2010, F.P. Journe celebrated the opening of their boutique in Beijing being the 6th worldwide following after Tokyo, Hong Kong, Geneva, Paris and New York. The opening of the Journe Boutique in Beijing was an important moment for the firm as they expand their expertise and exceptional craft to the largest up and coming community of collectors from the specific region. With a prime location located in the Yintaï Centre, it is only a 2-minute walk away from Tienanmen square.
To commemorate this special event, F.P. Journe created an exclusive and extremely rare, limited edition series of Tourbillon Souverain (TN) timepieces featuring a vibrantly coloured red lacquered dial displaying the 5 stars as seen on the national flag of the People’s Republic of China representing the 5 regions of the PRC replacing the hour units for the power reserve indication as seen in regular examples of the model. This was the first ever Tourbillon Souverain to feature a red dial. With the brand’s involvement in China, the trend has changed where more and more collectors from the region are starting to admire the intricacy and the difference between haute horology versus mass-produced luxury watches, which proved Journe’s shared vision with George Daniels to focus on creating non-utilitarian watches on point.
