    F.P. Journe

    Swiss • 1999

    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.

Inspired by the Chronomètre Souverain, the present larger than life quartz alarm clock faithfully captures the aesthetic codes and refinement of the brand's creation. The handsome oversized white guilloché dial pairs incredibly well with the beloved blue steel hands, and certainly blends style with elegance. Rarely seen on the market, this alarm table clock is offered with all its original accessories and is the perfect decor in any home or office for collectors of one of the greatest independent watchmakers of modern times.
