    Highly precise and subtly unassuming, FP Journe’s Centigraphe Souveraine reflects the independent watchmaker’s technical superiority and rigorous standard in quality.

    The present chronograph features three dials, with one foudroyante (or lightning) seconds hand that measures 1/100th of a second, reflected in the watch’s name “Centigraphe”. Produced in aluminum, the present ‘sport’ model weighs an astonishingly light 55 grammes - a technical marvel in itself.

    The Centigraphe uses a rocker stop/reset button, which means that two fingers can stay in the same place to keep time, allowing for easy timekeeping.

    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.
