  • Catalogue Essay

    On the 30th of October 2019, F. P. Journe opened their welcoming doors at the prestigious Dubai Mall as the brand’s first boutique in Dubai. In partnership with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, this marks the 10th boutique following the openings in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Geneva, Paris, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Beirut and Kiev.

    A watch for a milestone, F. P Journe launched a limited edition of the platinum Chronomètre Souverain, this time in olive green. A color that symbolize chance, fortune and fertility for the Middle East, the timepiece was produced in 99 pieces only.

    With its classic yet unexpected look, the dial for the Dubai edition features a minimalistic approach. No longer decorated with guilloche finishing, the smooth green canvas features white gold applied numerals and rhodium plated steel hands, the grey accents adds a touch of coolness to the entire timepiece.

    Powered by the in-house, manually wound caliber 1304, the movement is made of 18 karat pink gold and features a central twin barrel for 56 hours of power reserve. Paired with a matching two-tone green strap, this rare variant is offered for the first time at Phillips. Offered with its certificate and original accessories and numbered 50 from the production, this example is further presented in barely worn condition.

  • 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.
