This watch was presented to Dr. Daniels on the 24th June 2010 by François-Paul Journe to express his gratitude for inspiring his path into horology and to build watches of art and splendour.

F.P. Journe watch company in Switzerland is named after the founder François-Paul Journe. With a career of over 30 year in horological research , François-Paul explores the measurement of time with creativity and innovation. The motto of the brand, ‘Invenit et Fecit’ (‘I invented it, and I made it’) reflects the company ethos of inventing brand new movements and new systems which they also build in their entirety.
