Are F.P. Journe Boutique Collection and Black Label Collection going away?

Sep 05, 2021,12:35 PM

Very recently I found that the Catalogue 2022-2026 is available to download from the official Journe website. It is interesting that both the Boutique Collection and Black Label Collection are not in the catalogue. They are in the Catalogue 2016-2018. As we know that in the US market at least, Journe watches will be sold exclusively in their own boutiques starting 2022. Therefore, it seems that there will be no reasons for the needs of Boutique Collection, as every piece will be boutique only. The Black Label Collection has been restricted to boutiques only, so not surprised if they will be discontinued for the same reasons.

I own a Boutique Collection CS nacre, which is why I am very curious to know if it will be phased out soon. Would love to hear any insights by the Journe collectors here, thanks!

I am not the person with the answer, but cannot miss commenting on such a gorgeous watch!

How I have never purchased an FPJ is a huge mistake. And a very costly one, should I decide to correct it! Long live that amazing dial of your watch. Thanks for the photos.

My understanding is your watch has not been available for some time.

Or at least I’ve asked the Boutique (last year) and they have told me I can’t order one. Others mileage may vary ! I’ve seen new Black Label watches very recently so don’t know anything but people are still seeing them delivered.

Thanks for sharing your information!

I see that the CS nacre is still under “Current Collections” at the Journe website. So I thought that it is still available in theory. As you asked, in reality, one cannot order any more. The CS nacre and other models in the nacre collection were first in... 

Got it, thanks!

Really beautiful piece you have!

Yours Octa Automatique nacre is discontinued and is listed under “Retrospective Collections” on Journe’s website. Mine is the Chronometre Souverain nacre and is still listed under “Current Collections” on the website today. However, the boutique collectio... 

You are welcome!

The boutique line with the red gold cases was discontinued all together a few years ago. The Black Label is still produced but is limited to big clients only. The Nacre dials can be done but only In very rare instances. The watch you have is extremely, ex... 

Thank you very much for your information and I was very happy to know that!

I felt very lucky to own this rare piece. I placed an order with an AD who was also an E-space partner (dedicated retail space for Journe) in 2019. The wait time was 7 months. I tried but failed to get any other Journe pieces. But I am very happy already ... 

Thank you so much for the compliment! I am very happy to hear it.

There is no boutique or AD near where I live. I ordered it in 2019 based on what I saw on the Journe website and their catalogue. It was beyond my expectations when I received the delivery. It is indeed very beautiful and special. Thanks again!
