For over thirty years François-Paul Journe has been faithfully dedicated to creating authentic high horology timepieces. His innovations such as the Chronomètre à Résonance, the Tourbillon Souverain or the Sonnerie Souveraine have won him numerous horological awards. His independent F.P.Journe Manufacture has today become a brand of reference among the respected horological firms. Less than 900 exclusive mechanical watches, with an 18 ct. rose gold movement, one of the brand’s signature, are produced each year in this universe where haute horology and the fine arts become one. Engraved with the Invenit et Fecit motto, they are the guarantee of an authentic Manufacture calibre.
