T-10

Jun 07, 2022,19:08 PM
 





Manufactured in 2013 and limited to 10 examples, this platinum piece commemorates the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Tokyo boutique (hence the ‘T’ In ‘T-10’) as well as the establishment of the 10th international F. P. Journe boutique - in Beirut.



The case is 40mm in diameter and the design is reminiscent of the pocket watch François Paul Journe created in his youth.



Unlike Journe’s other tourbillon watches, the tourbillon is not visible on the dial side. However, thanks to the transparent sapphire caseback, it and the rose gold movement are there for one to flip over and admire. Students of history will see the influence that Breguet and George Daniels had in the creation of this movement. The movement beats away at 21,600 vibrations per hour and features two parallel power barrels which provide 56 hours of power. I especially like the pronounced blued screws.

Not gonna lie thought it was a Jaquet Droz at first. The movement screams Breguet/Daniels. I love the symmetry.

Gorgeous FPJ

Even aside from the amazing movement, I think the dial design and contrasting black/white just looks incredibly attractive!

It's spectacular, beautiful, stunning! What more need one to say.

I visited the Tokyo boutique last year and was warmly welcomed and had a good discussion with the staff. It was very stylish and I was able to get on a waitlist too. Not for this one, though. ha ha.

WOW the T10 is the grail of grails....
