  • Catalogue Essay

    The Chronomètre Souverain model is one of F.P. Journe's most iconic collections. The present watch, cased in platinum, features many of F.P. Journe's distinctive design elements. The movement is crafted with 18k gold and the dial is fitted with the brand's characteristic hands and numeral design. The engine-turned dial features a fan-form sector for power reserve and an eccentric dial for subsidiary seconds. The layout is asymmetrical yet perfectly balances, giving the watch a somewhat classic look.

  • 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.
