A watch we don’t talk about so often here. 

Very cool and with some beautiful and very original features. I especially love the tunnel mirror that is constructed around the Tourbillon cage.

Here with a black dial

Here is the original version at the launch. An impressive watch.

Thanks you for chiming in my friend. I think my preferences for Journe tourbillons…

Would put the first model T or the T30 at the top. I would guess the the ambition with this one was to bring something new to the table as is often the case with FPJ. I struggled with the aesthetics of the dial of this one and even if it will never be my ... 

I've never seen one in person!

Hope to one day have the pleasure of seeing one in person!

I hope you will. These are rare, even among Journe collectors.

A very original interpretation of a tourbillon and a bit of a departure from the typical Journe aesthetics.

Vey nice Chopard. A great manufacturer

I Think the text was always used by FPJ as a modern aesthetic element just like you see on Rolex dial. Sometimes 4 lines of text. Sometimes two. Even within the same model. Greubel F. Also use (a lot) of text as a decorative element. It’s something that d... 

The original version looks so, so nice!

I spent time with this at a former FPJ authorized dealer several years ago. The gold dial was really nice, much more appealing than the black dial IMHO. Definitely an unusual Journe given its relative case thickness.

A former dealer?

+ 1 on the gold dial…... I think the thickness bothers a good part of the typical Journe collectors.

 By: ChristianDK : February 7th, 2024-19:28
It seems massive at 13,6 mm thickness and 42 mm case. Of course this is nothing unusual if we look at other brands but with FPJ you kind of expect a thin watch …….even if it is a with a high complication. I think it sits well but i just LOVE the feeling o...  

This is just an INSANE watch.

And only JOURNE can make something so technical and complex so beautiful from a design perspective. Just amazing.

Incredible and stunning FPJ
