  • Catalogue Essay

    This latest version of the F.P. Journe Chronomètre Souverain, produced in 2014, features not only a movement made of solid 18 carat rose gold, but also a dial made of solid gold. Cased in platinum, the dial is manufactured by Journe with raised, stylized Arabic numerals in relief, embossed from the dial’s surface. Polished to a mirror-like shine, the numerals radiate and reflect light for a superb, eye-catching effect. It remains in stunning, like new condition.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
