F.P. Journe, the world renowned manufacturer of high end and exclusive wrist watches, now joins hands with British bespoke gun specialist Holland & Holland to create a special series of mechanical timepieces.
Just like traditional and artisanal watch making, the manufacturing of bespoke guns requires expertise of highly specialized craftsmen like professional polishers, decorators and engravers, fine wood and precious metal specialists, lacquerers and precision mechanics. The conception of an F.P. Journe watch can take a minimum of three years; the making of a bespoke Holland & Holland gun can take up to two years, during which time the client can choose each part of his new gun.
The two antique Holland & Holland barrels, bearing the serial numbers 1382 (38 dials) and 7183 (28 dials), only allowed for the making of dials that will never exist in any other watch. The Chronomètre Holland & Holland is accessible to F.P. Journe and Holland & Holland collectors through an application process.
