Lot Essay

With F.P. Journe Warranty letter dated 12 September 2009 confirming the present example is part of the special series of the Chronomètre à Résonance model limited to 5 timepieces and designed for Orologeria Pisa, Milano (Italy). Furthermore delivered with instruction manual, original wooden presentation box and outer packaging.

Important Milanese retailer, Orologeria Pisa, celebrated sixty years of activity in 2000. The history of the Pisa family is based on a passion for high end watchmaking: their stores retail only what they consider the most prestigious brands. The union between innovation and tradition has always distinguished the work of the founders along the years. The family built strong ties with numerous high end watchmaking brands. In recognition, several brands, such as Vacheron Constantin, Panerai, Patek Philippe and F.P Journe, made commemorative limited edition celebrating their relationship with Orologeria Pisa.

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