Description

F.P. Journe Elegante was introduced in 2014 as a ladies’ reference with a quartz movement. But not just another quartz movement. 8 years in the making, the F.P. Journe Caliber 1210 is a revolutionary electromechanical movement and an important contribution to the world of horology.

It practically challenges the basic ethos of quartz, taking it to a whole new level. The bridges and plates are made in red gold and finished to the FPJ standards. The watch goes to sleep if not worn for 30 minutes and then jumps back into action adjusting the time automatically taking the battery life to 8 – 10 years with active usage, and up to 18 years in sleep mode.

More recently the Elegante collection has become one of the most sought-after watches on the market.

 

The present reference is the extremely beautiful F.P. Journe Élégante Joaillerie Platinum Diamonds and Precious Stones, it features a stunning combination of diamonds and precious stones, along with a unique electro-mechanical movement that sets it apart from other luxury watches.

The patented flat Tortue case of the watch is made from platinum uncommon for the Elegante collection and measures 40mm in diameter, the case is set with 315 brilliant-cut white diamonds. The circular portion of the dial is also set with 259 white diamonds and 121 black diamonds hour ring.

The movement of the watch is a unique electro-mechanical movement that is designed to be highly accurate and energy efficient. The movement features a quartz oscillator and is powered by a rechargeable battery that can last for up to 10 years. The watch also features a power saving mode that can extend the battery life even further.

One of the most notable features of the Élégante is its mechanical memory function. The watch is able to detect when it is not being worn and will automatically enter a sleep mode to conserve energy. When the watch is worn again, it will automatically adjust the time to the correct setting within a few seconds.

This very rare timepiece is rumoured to be made in less than 10 pieces according to a FPJ Boutique, offered here on a taupe rubber strap that adds up beautifully to the overall elegance of the watch with the platinum buckle that is set with 18 diamonds.
