NEW VERSIONS OF THE INNOVATIVE F.P. JOURNE ELECTRO-MECHANICAL CREATION

Present for the first time at the SIHH (2018) with their own booth (exclusively dedicated to the Elegante collection line) F.P. Journe did surprise us.

I have to say that i love the idea behind the "Elegante" and as always with Mr. Journe, there is a clear objective/intention! In this case, he basically wanted to create a contemporary watch for Women.

The calibre 1210 is equipped with a motion sensor (visible at 4:30) and a very useful feature that continues mesure the time even if the piece is on "stand-by" mode (or motionless over 30 minutes). The movement required eight years of research and development. The "Wow" moment comes when "Madame" takes her timepiece back on! The Elegante re-adjusts itself automatically thanks to the active microprocessor!!!

Even if some would call this mouvement a "quartz" one, my opinion is that the creation goes further than a basic quartz mouvement, especially in terms of functionality and design.

It's a beautiful alternative to a 100% mechanical piece and of course fits a demand.
Many options are available in terms of Bracelets - Case materials and dials.

Well done! F.P. Journe.
