    - Inspired by the work of the great 18th century watchmaker Antide Janvier, the F.P. Journe résonance was the world’s first wristwatch to bring the Resonance phenomenon back in 2000.

    - The technically impressive movement is composed of two independent balances, alternatively serving as an “exciter” and “resonator”. When in motion, the balances create the resonance effect and beat in opposition, naturally evening out each other’s discrepancies and thus permitting greater accuracy.

    - The Chronomètre à Résonance is one of the most sought after models made by F.P. Journe.

    - In 18K pink gold, the present watch is a 2nd generation model featuring a 40mm case and a pink gold movement and was only made between 2005 and 2008.

    - The watch comes complete with box and guarantee card. It has furthermore been serviced by F.P. Journe in late 2021.

  • 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.
