Catalogue Note

Francois-Paul Journe began his career as a clock restorer in France. Ultimately, the talented watchmaker created his own manufacture in 1999. His innovative approach to watchmaking and great sense of design inevitably made Francois Paul Journe one of the most acclaimed independent watchmakers and the only one to win the celebrated Aiguille d’Or prize three times.

The Chronometre Bleu timepiece is innovative in many ways. To begin with, the case is made from tantalum, a seldom seen and difficult metal to work with. The dial, made by the Journe Cadrans integrated dial manufacture, is lacquered to perfection to resemble a striking blue mirror above which the cream Roman numerals appear to be floating. Finally, the twin barrel movement is made from 18ct gold, a unique brand signature. The Chronometre Bleu is among FP Journe’s most popular wristwatches to date and has become an increasingly sought-after piece.

The present example which left the Geneva ateliers in 2011 and stands in great condition is accompanied by its original warranty card, instructions manual and presentation case.
