F.P. Journe introduces a new feminine and sensuous version of the élégante Joaillerie set with diamonds and multi-color precious stones to sublimate women’s wrists.
It took eight years of research for F.P. Journe to develop this horological concept with extremely precise requirements, leading to this gem of innovation, technical performance, precision and comfort.
The 40 mm Platinum patented flat Tortue case is pave-set with diamonds intertwined with rubies, blue sapphires, tsavorites or black diamonds. The dial is also set with similar stones and a diamond hour circle. The black diamond version features an opposite setting which makes the numerals in this version stand out more than in the coloured ones. The functions include central hours and minutes and a small seconds at 6 o’clock.
The case is made from platinum, features a transparent sapphire back and is water resistant up to 3 bar.
The élégance by F.P. Journe was designed and conceived to provide this watch with a very long autonomy of 8 to 18 years depending if in daily use or in standby mode.
The élégance embodies the intelligent watch. The electro-mechanical movement is fitted with a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4.30. After 30 motionless minutes, the watch switches to standby mode in order to save energy and its hands stop turning. During the standby mode, the microprocessor continues to measure time, but the mechanical elements – gear train, rotors and hands, stop moving. As soon as the watch is worn again, the hands automatically set themselves to the correct time, taking the shortest path, whether clockwise or counter-clockwise. The movement, responsible for it all, is the calibre 1210, a quartz movement working at 32.768 Hz.
A watch that allows time to be stopped and started again is the dream not only of watchmakers but of watch-enthusiasts as well. Downright magic on your wrist. And the gems in this collection are a sparkly bonus.
The Élégante New Jewellery Collection is completed by powdered satin bracelets of matching colours. The folding clasps are also set with diamonds.
