  • Catalogue Essay

    Offered without reserve and crafted in platinum and jade, the present stunning cufflinks are a perfect accompanying accessory to the Chronomètre Optimum "Jade Dial", making for a dashing ensemble together. While F.P. Journe offers a number of cufflinks with different hard stone and materials to the center, jade is arguably one of the most difficult materials to work with due to its fragile nature - it is incredibly challenging to cut thin sheets of jade without breaking the stone, attesting to F.P. Journe's savoir-faire and excellence.

    Most strikingly, the edges of the cufflinks recall the crown of F.P. Journe models such as the Optimum or Résonance - a cohesive nod to F.P. Journe's indelible design language. Moreover, the platinum gives heft and gravitas to the cufflinks, giving a stealthy and stylish appearance.

  • 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.
