Lot Essay

Accompanied by an additional F.P. Journe 18k White Gold deployant clasp, additional F.P. Journe crocodile strap, loupe, F.P. Journe polishing cloth, watch tool, product literature, F.P. Journe presentation box and outer packaging.

The Tourbillon Souverain has a special four-arm balance which beats with a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. It is the only wristwatch to be fitted with a remontoire that provides a constant force to the escapement which maintains the isochronisms of the balance oscillations.

The present watch is number 1 in a limited edition of 99 examples.

For collectors of F.P. Journe watches, the limited edition series of pieces made with ruthenium-coated movements and dials are among the most desirable, for both the material used as well as their striking and innovative aesthetics. Furthermore, it is understood these are the only 40mm F.P. Journe watches ever made with the legendary brass movements. This watch is not only desirable for those characteristics, but furthermore for the fact that it is number 1 in the series of 99 pieces made.
