  • Catalogue Essay

    The F.P. Journe Centigraphe indicates elapsed time from a 100th of a second to 10-minute and is displayed on three subsidiary dials. These registers indicate time scale in red and a tachymetre scale in black. The mechanism also features an ingenious configuration that isolates the chronograph from the time keeping system.

    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.
