F.P. Journe

The full set platinum dual time Resonance Chronometer


Extraordinary example of platinum F.P. Journe dual time Resonance Chronometer, manufactured in 2001.

Originally released at the beginning of the millennium, the F.P. Journe Chronomètre à Résonance can certainly be considered as one of the most daring and thought provoking watches of the past 30 years.
The model was the world’s first wristwatch to use the resonance phenomenon, whereby the movement is composed of two independent balances, alternatively serving as an “exciter” and “resonator”.

When in motion, the two balances create a resonance effect and beat in opposition, naturally evening out each other’s discrepancies and thus permitting greater accuracy. Inspired by the early works of the great 18th century watchmaker Antide Janvier and by Abraham Louis Breguet, Journe in 1983 set off to develop and successfully implement the resonance system into a pocket watch only to further push its boundaries almost 17 years later in creating a wristwatch version.

Made from 2000 to 2004, first generation Chronomètre à Resonance, like the present example, feature rhodium plated brass movements and a 38mm case. Highly sought-after, these early Journe combine technical prowess with historical relevance.
As a dual-time wristwatch, the two time-zones are presented on separate silver guilloché subdials that show the hours, minutes and seconds in a 12-hour display. In 2004 the second generation models (the RN series for "Resonance "Nouvelle") would introduce rose gold movements to replace brass and housed predominantly in a larger 40mm cases.

Cased in platinum the present F.P Journe Chronomètre à Résonance is further accompanied by its full set of accessories.

Preserved in excellent condition, the present timepiece is not only a superior timekeeper, but also a technical work of art.
