Lot Essay

A unique F.P. Journe Chronomètre à Résonance is an extremely exciting prospect, particularly when it is also one of the super-exclusive ‘RT’ or ‘Résonance Trois’ edition, made for only one year in 2019, and then retired. This very special reference was produced in celebration of the iconic model’s 20th anniversary. Only available as standard in either rose gold or platinum with 40 mm cases with correspondingly coloured dials, the present platinum watch is an exceptional and very special unique piece fitted with a beautifully lustrous blue mother of pearl dial, undoubtedly one of the rarest individual watches of this already almost unobtainable Chronomètre à Résonance edition. A unique F.P. Journe watch of this significance would only have been offered to a most valued and loyal client of the brand, such as the present owner, and personally approved by Mr. Journe.
The mother of pearl dial, numerals, minute and seconds tracks provide a ravishingly sophisticated and elegant aesthetic for this unique piece, an F.P. Journe masterpiece and one of the most beautiful specimens of perhaps F.P. Journe’s most famous creation – the Chronomètre à Résonance.

The 20th Anniversary Edition ‘Series 3’ Resonance
In true F.P. Journe style, the 2019 Résonance RT was not merely redesigned aesthetically with a return to the dial symmetry of earlier series, but also presented new technical challenges. The movement of the 2019 Résonance of course features the pair of balance wheels beating in resonance with one another and powering the two synchronized time displays. Technically, this model is identical to the standard production ‘Series 3’ watches, with a symmetrical looking dial, except that the left-hand dial retains the 24-hour display of the preceding series. The dial frames are identical to those seen on ‘Series 2’ watches. This model is also significant because it heralded the end of the ‘classic’ Cal. 1499 ‘Chronomètre à Résonance’ series.
