In 1780, Antide Janvier, a gifted watchmaker to the King of France, found that by putting two pendulums on the same structure they began to beat together in resonance. This force enveloped the pendulums, protecting them from outside vibrations and enhancing the movement's precision. Two centuries later, and after A.L. Breguet succeeded in building a pocket watch with two pendulums, Francois-Paul Journe, another very gifted watchmaker, was the first to find the way to put this phenomenon into a wristwatch: the remarkable Chronomètre à Résonance.
The present lot, produced to mark the 10th anniversary of the Résonance, is forged of 18k red gold, incorporating 24 hour indication and an incredibly striking silver salmon dial.
