Introducing FP Journe FFC

Di |2023-04-26T20:01:53+01:00April 20th, 2023|

In anticipation of the production of a small collection of watches inspired by the Francis Ford Coppola Blue prototype (we are talking about a production of about 5 pieces per year at a cost of 830000 Swiss francs excluding taxes), a one-off created for Only Watch 2021, it seemed useful to revisit its genesis and its singular way of telling the time, made possible by a hand whose fingers [...]

Introducing F.P. Journe Octa Automatique – THE REFERENCE OF THE CLASSIC COLLECTION

Di |2022-04-06T21:40:08+01:00April 5th, 2022|

In 2021, on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the Octa caliber, F.P. Journe presented the Octa Automatique Série Limitée with a rhodium-plated brass movement and a yellow gold dial. And it is therefore a logical consequence that the Automatic has become part of the current collection, in the 40 and 42 mm versions, with a platinum or 6k 18N red gold case, combining the elegance of [...]

Di |2022-04-06T21:40:28+01:00April 5th, 2022|

As has been the case for several years now, the one at the Geneva show, formerly SIHH, which has now become Watches & Wonders, brings together enthusiasts, collectors, retailers and the press from all over the world, for what is without a doubt, the most important event for fine watchmaking. Slightly staggered at the event (30 March - 5 April), F.P. Journe inaugurated its own salon, inside [...]

Di |2021-07-04T19:50:37+01:00July 4th, 2021|

In recent years, we have become accustomed to seeing FP Journe present new complications. But what the watchmaker presents for Only Watch 2021 is truly unexpected. Meet the FFC Blue, an extremely bold and original automaton watch created with Francis Ford Coppola. The first impression - I confess - was not the best, but after having discovered how this spectacle was born [...]

Di |2021-04-12T20:39:14+01:00April 12th, 2021|

The introduction of the Octa caliber in 2001 was a milestone for FP Journe. With it, the independent watchmaker introduced a self-winding movement with an impressive 160-hour power reserve. In the past 20 years, only three updates have been made to the movement. The last one consists in modifying the winding mechanism, opting for a winder [...]

Résonance, from Christian Huygens to the new Chronomètre by François-Paul Journe

Di |2020-05-02T00:51:42+01:00May 1st, 2020|

Résonance is a term that for us watch lovers evokes wonderful watches, mostly refined mechanical and stylistic creations brought to light by that genius who bears the name François-Paul Journe. But what does Résonance or Resonance mean for us Italians? It is a term linked exclusively to marketing, or it finds its concrete reason, aimed at finding the best [...]
