The revolutionary electro-mechanical movement of the élégante, its very long autonomy and its exceptional comfort of use is now available in 48mm.
The pure aesthetics of the flat Tortue case, whose design is trademarked ®, doesn’t lose any of its elegance and establishes a contemporary urban style. It is enlarged for the pleasure of larger wrists or for those who like to wear oversized watches.
All the mechanical parts of its movement are manufactured in the Geneva workshops of the Manufacture, based on the brand’s own criteria of excellence in state-of-the-art haute horology. The electronic components are developed by a Swiss engineer and made in Switzerland according to exclusive and exacting standards, with a microprocessor specifically created for the élégante.
The élégante will be available in the 10 F.P. Journe Boutiques, the 9 Espaces as well as from selected official F.P. Journe retailers.
