The F.P. Journe's Chronomètre Bleu Byblos was produced to commemorate the opening of their tenth boutique in Beirut, Lebanon. This limited series of 99 numbered pieces not only demonstrates the scarcity of timepieces produced by this house but also the house's acute attention to detail and design. Named after the first and oldest inhabited city in the world, Byblos represents F.P. Journe's commitment to success in the region and its own rich history.
F.P. Journe executed a semi skeletonized dial for the first time to great effect. A powerful blue hour circle frames their signature 18k pink gold movement. Another unprecedented feature is the variation to the F.P. Journe logo, whose J is written in the Phoenician alphabet. The dial is further amplified by a tantalum case, a rare dark metal with rich blue overtones. Tantalum is highly resistant to corrosion but is rarely seen in watchmaking due to its unyielding nature. This material itself marks F.P. Journe as a leader in exceptional watchmaking.
This highly collectible piece is an amalgamation of F.P. Journe's precision, innovation, and remarkable sensitivity to visual aesthetics.
