The following is a part of a longer conversation during a meeting between Mr Journe and myself as I was, at the end of the day, very kindly offered the opportunity to ask him a few questions. I of course grabbed this chance and asked him about where the collection is heading now. We had an interpreter translating between English and French. Please, have this in mind...Story

New Resonance

Here are a few quick photos of the new Resonance, with the 24 hour indicator on the left. It's available in platinum and rose gold. Note that FPJ drew this 8 years ago, but kept it in his drawer until the 10th anniversary of the Resonance; he feels it's a good time to update it. The reason for the dials being asymmetrical now is that the discs for the 24 hour display are limited by the location of the seconds hand (otherwise they wouldn't fit)....Story

Chronometre Souverain "Tricolore"

For the past year I've been falling slowly but surely in love with FP Journe watches, I'm not one of those collectors who is too hung up about the technical aspects of a timepiece but am driven by the aesthetics and the play of light on the dial and case, maybe its my inner child who knows but when I saw the yellow dialled Resonance for the first time I know my heart skipped a beat and as I delved deeper and deeper I began to truly appreciate the design and colors of the various timepieces of FP Journe, I am a fan of the steampunk genre and the original Dead Seconds Tourbillon was a perfect example of a steampunk mood in design which I truly love. So it was only a matter of time before I acquired my first FP Journe piece and I want to share it with ......Story

As many of you know I have always had a deep passion for the Ruthenium collection. Not only is the dial color brilliant but the ruthenium covered movements are stunning. I remember constantly staring at the photos of the Remontoir and Resonance in the first catalogue and the rest of the set in the second edition. The photos alone stirred a strong desire to own them...Story

bs22fly
This year's FPJ Annual Exhibition was indeed a treat and certainly worth the trip from Hong Kong. As all of you know already, this year Francois Paul introduced his ultra slim minute repeater which features two mainspring barrels in parrallel, linear escapement with 15 tooth escape wheel, a balance wheel with 4x variable inertia weights and an anachron free-sprung flat balance spring. The movement height is only 4mm with a diameter of 31.6mm. The case size is 40mm and is in stainless steel...Story
