Lot Essay

This endangered species strap is shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The watch will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

Consigned by a private collector and preserved in excellent overall condition, the present watch is from the highly sought after pink gold version.

Introduced in 2004, the 'Reference TN' for 'Tourbillon Nouveau' is the direct descendant of the celebrated ‘Reference T’ - F.P. Journe’s first production watch but also the very first wristwatch ever to use a constant force remontoire.

The Tourbillon Souverain, another of F.P. Journe's horologic masterworks, is distinguished by its complications, combing a one minute tourbillon with a constant force remontoir. The remontoir provides a constant force to the balance, hence maintaining an equal rate of force whether the watch is fully wound or not and increasing the precision.

François-Paul Journe's ingenious masterpiece is the first wristwatch combining a remontoir d'égalité, dead beat seconds and a tourbillon regulator.

The Tourbillon Souverain received the Aiguille d’Or prize at the Geneva Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in 2004. It was also elected watch of the year at the “Watch of the Year” grand prize in Japan in 2004. The present timepiece represents a unique opportunity for collectors of the brand.
