    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.

Crowned the Best Men’s Watch at the Geneva Grand Prix D’Horlogerie when it was launched, the Chronomètre Souverain, with its guilloche dial, has cemented itself as a model of reference in the watch-making world. The present model, dubbed “Havana” due to its warm tobacco tones, envelops the wearer in a smoky Cuban mist. Unique to F.P. Journe and developed by Les Cadraniers de Genève, the dial colour is the result of the careful combination of gold and ruthenium. At only 8mm thick, this model nevertheless boasts the power of the in-house manually wound cal.1304, while its movement is made entirely of 18k pink gold, and features a 56-hour power reserve. The Havana model is the perfect representation of the mastery of one of the greatest modern independent watchmakers, combining both innovation and elegance. The present example is found in excellent condition, complete with full accessories.
