    François-Paul Journe (born in Marseille in 1967) graduated from the Paris School of Watchmaking in 1976 and immediately joined forces with his uncle, a noted restorer of antique timepieces. Before creating his own complete line of wristwatches, Journe restored some of the world's most important historical timepieces, devised and built unique pocket watches to order, and designed and made complications for prestigious watch brands.

    In 1996, Journe established a workshop in Geneva, designing and making watch mechanisms for other brands. Three years later, in 1999, he launched his own watches under the label "F.P. Journe Invenit et Fecit".

    The Chronomètre à Résonance model was launched in 2000, the only wristwatch in the world based on resonance, a natural physical phenomenon. The two balances are synchronized by means of the resonance effect and naturally beat alternately. The negative effects of wrist and body movements are hence considerably reduced.
