  • Catalogue Essay

    Accompanying the purchase of the final Vagabondage in the No. 60 set, the VIII, this numbered presentation box with three compartments, one for each edition, was given to the original owner to house their three masterpieces. Rendered in a dark wood soft and delicate to the touch, the interior is fitted with cream leather and topped with a polished metal plate engraved with the unique number of the set.

    If all three pieces of the Vagabondage triptych are purchased by the same paddle number, this lot will be immediately withdrawn and awarded to that paddle number. If the pieces are sold to separate paddle numbers, the box will be sold without reserve.


  • 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.
