Catalogue Note

F. P. Journe unveiled his first collection at the Basel Fair in 1999, adopting the spirit of "Invenit et Fecit" Latin for "invented and made". The Tourbillon Souverain was the first watch Journe created himself. This novel timepiece offered the exclusive combination of a wristwatch with tourbillon and constant-force device.  Despite the model's immediate success, Journe decided to cease production in 2003 in order to maintain exclusivity and develop his own creativity. 

Thus, the Tourbillon Souverain à Seconde Morte was born. A more sophisticated version of its predecessor, it includes a deadbeat seconds function. Journe produced approximately one hundred pieces of this model, again focusing on exclusivity and craftsmanship. In 2004, the Tourbillon Souverain à Seconde Morte was awarded the esteemed 'Aiguille d'or' from the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix. 

Featured within an impressive 40 mm case, this exclusive and elegantly styled timepiece is a highly desirable item for patrons of independent horology.
