Description

Invenit et Fecit – Invented and Made
François-Paul Journe is one of the most respected watchmakers of our time. He is considered to be a link between the 18th century watchmakers and the modern era – a reference he has earned through his work which is a combination of old school horology inventiveness and modern technology, presented as timepieces that are beautifully hand-finished.

In 1983, he completed his first tourbillon pocket watch and in 1991, launched the prototype of his first wristwatch “Tourbillon Souverain”, incorporating a remontoire within a wristwatch for the very first time. The plate, the bridges, as well as the gear-trains were crafted entirely in 18K Gold, which has since become a trademark character of most FP Journe watches.

The watch officially debuted in 1999, along with 2 more timepieces, namely Chronomètre à Résonance and Octa Reserve de Marche. The launches came as an announcement that FP Journe (the brand) has arrived. ‘Montres Journe SA’ was now a registered brand.

Since then, FP Journe has surprised the watch community with several inventions and unconventional timepieces, making him the only three-time winner of the grand title of Aiguille d’Or at GPHG.

He has also won several other awards at this prestigious annual event, including the prize for the Best Men’s Watch for his Chronomètre Souverain launched in 2005.

 

The present watch is the F.P. Journe Chronomètre Souverain Boutique Edition launched in 2020, to celebrate the opening of the brand’s first Dubai boutique, and 10th in the world.

Only 99 pieces of this stunning timepiece were made and were instantly sold out. The watch itself is the iconic Chronomètre Souverain in a 40mm platinum case, measuring a mere 8.6mm in thickness. What’s distinctive though, is the unusual green colored dial, and the matching green leather strap – a color that is symbolic in the Middle East of chance, fortune and fertility.

It is a bold, bright and an unmissable timepiece which has already gained the ‘extremely desired’ status and in the same league as the iconic and rare CS Bleu Byblos.

Seen through the sapphire caseback is the magnificent Calibre 1304, An extra flat movement measuring just 3.75mm thick, with two barrels delivering 56-hrs of chronometric power reserve.

The baseplate and bridges are made of 18K rosegold and finished impeccably with Côtes de Genève on the bridges with mirrored anglage, polished screw heads, chamfered slots and a baseplate with part circular graining and barleycorn guilloché.

This masterpiece comes on a hand-stitched soft green leather strap, its original limited edition warranty certificate and box.
