FPJourne presents the Elégante 12 rangs de diamants proposed with a 40 × 35 mm case, and equipped with new bracelets with sertissage. Designed for a female audience, these new models reflect the Manufacture's know-how, which here combines watchmaking innovation with the refinement of jewelery.
The 12 links, in Titanium or Titalyt®, are decorated with 382 brilliant-cut diamonds for a total of 3,23 carats. Completed with a second part in interchangeable rubber, these new bracelets adapt perfectly to the wrist, offering comfort and lightness. To vary the styles according to your wishes, they are available in 8 color variations: white, midnight blue, burgundy, gray, yellow, black, orange and powder pink, and can complement the 40 mm Elégante models.
Several elements make up the watch: a sapphire crystal dial, white for the Titanium version, black for the Titalyt® version, and screwed steel appliques. To complete this women's collection, FPJourne has chosen its Tortue Plate® case, the brand's registered trademark.
The Elégante by FPJourne is an innovative watchmaking concept that combines tradition, modern technology and the result of 8 years of research, which were necessary to bring it to fruition. François-Paul Journe said: “I made this watch because women have been asking me for a women's watch for 20 years; a different and comfortable watch to use, which adapts to their needs and desires. So I thought of a specific model for them, which could last forever. The Elégante features a unique electromechanical movement designed with a true vision of luxury. "
All the mechanical parts of the movement were made in the FPJourne laboratories according to its criteria of excellence. The electronic part is made in Switzerland, with a microprocessor developed specifically for this watch.
Thanks to this electromechanical movement, the Elégante boasts over 8 years of autonomy making it very comfortable to use. After 35 minutes of standing still, the watch goes into standby mode and the hands stop in order to save energy. During this rest phase, the microprocessor continues to count the time. When the motion detector visible on the dial at 4.30 is activated, it automatically resets itself to the correct time by the shortest way, clockwise or counterclockwise. The FPJourne Elégante has the power to stop time and restart it, the absolute dream of every watchmaker.
