Founded by watchmaker François-Paul Journe in 1999, the F.P. Journe brand is relatively young, but already is as highly regarded by collectors as many distinguished manufacturers with centuries-old heritage. In the minds of the world's savviest collectors, Journe is producing some of the finest wristwatches the market has ever seen. Mastering his craft from restoring historical timepieces, he was the first to create a wristwatch incorporating two escapements that benefit from the phenomenon of resonance — the Chronomètre à Résonance.
Key models include the Résonance, tourbillon wristwatches incorporating a remontoir and the limited edition Vagabondage series. Especially sought-after are his earliest "souscription" watches, made in 1999.
Housed in a 39mm Tantalum case the Chronometre Bleu remains an instantly recognisable masterpiece from F.P.Journe thanks to its polished-dial displaying various shades that compliment the grey-blue tones of the case. Found complete with full accessories including International Guarantee this treasured example is the perfect entry to the world of Independent watchmaking.
