  • 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.

F.P. Journe’s “Élégante” redefined the concept of a luxury quartz watch. Allowing time to effectively stop and start again, the tortue-shaped watch has both a standby and an active mode. The motion detector allows the hands to change automatically to the correct time as soon as the watch is in movement. Furthermore, the watch boasts an incredible autonomy of 8 to 10 years in daily use, and 18 years in standby mode, ensuring practicality, as well as elegance, in daily wear. The present example, in excellent condition, is further accompanied by the F. P. Journe International Guarantee, polishing cloth, outer packaging and fitted presentation box. Three brightly coloured straps in pop-y orange, deep blue and olive green are also included, offering further versatility and charm to this horological marvel.
