F.P.Journe Donates a Unique Piece of His Chronomètre Optimum in Platinum with a Specific Dial for Action Innocence

Master watchmaker F.P.Journe committed once again for Action Innocence in order to protect the dignity and security of children on the Internet in making a unique piece of his Chronomètre Optimum in Platinum with a specific dial at the colors of Action Innocence.
The charity gala evening took place at the Espace Hippomène in Geneva on May 10, 2017 in presence of numerous guests who have generously mobilized their forces for the protection of children on the internet.
Generosity paid during the auction animated by Hugh Edmeades, the Chronomètre Optimum was adjudicated for CHF 200’000.-, amount entirely donated at the profit of the foundation. In 2015, the Tourbillon Souverain was adjudicated for 350’000.-CHF, i.e. 2.35 times its price. On May 10, 2017, the Chronomètre Optimum was adjudicated for 200’000.-CHF i.e. 2.35 times its price.
