Élégante By F.P.Journe
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.
The 40 mm Platinum patented flat Tortue case is pave-set with diamonds intertwined with rubies, blue sapphires, tsavorites or black diamonds and a powdered satin bracelet of matching colour. The dial is also set with similar stones and a diamond hour circle. The black diamond version features an opposite setting. The folding clap is also set with diamonds.
It took 8 years of research for F.P. Journe to develop this revolutionary horological concept with extremely precise requirements, leading to this gem of innovation, technical performance, precision and comfort. The élégante 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 élégante by F.P. Journe embodies the intelligent watch. The electromechanical movement is fitted with a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4h30. After 30 minutes motionless, 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 élégante by F.P. Journe allows time to be stopped and started again, absolute dream of all watchmakers. Today it features the only haute horology electromechanical movement conceived and made for the luxury market with a true vision of luxury.
The élégante is also available:
-With a 40 mm Titanium case, with or without diamonds, luminescent dial and rubber strap, available in 7 colours.
-With a 40 mm 18K red Gold case, set with one row of diamonds, pave set or without diamonds. -With a case in Platinum pave-set with diamonds, dial also pave-set.
-With a 48 mm oversized Titanium case with rubber strap in 9 colours or with diamond pave-set bezel, on karung silver white snake strap.
Classic yet contemporary, combining tradition and modern technologies, the élégante by F.P. Journe embodies the magic inherent to all F.P. Journe creations and surely makes its mark on horological history.
