FPJourne 2019 Tourbillon Souverain Vertical

Jan 11, 2019,08:30 AM

TOURBILLON SOUVERAIN VERTICAL To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Tourbillon Souverain, during its annual Salon, F.P.Journe will present the Tourbillon Souverain Vertical, a tourbillon whose cage is vertical, rather than the traditional horizontal cage. This vertical tourbillon, with remontoir d’égalité and dead beat second, makes one revolution every 30 seconds. This is faster than the usual time of one minute, making the technical prowess even more visually astonishing. Surrounding the cage, a cone-shaped mirror-polished ring concentrates light, reflecting the tourbillon cage. A second reflector was also created on the movement side to diffuse the light. The 4N Gold bridges that form the dial are engraved, painted, and decorated with “Clous de Paris” guilloché with, for the first time, a Grand Feu enamel hour dial at 3 o’clock in 18K white Gold. -from the FPJ announcement

It's great to finally get a visual on it and see that the face will retain the same basic shape. FPJ has been hinting at the vertical tourbillon for a while now!

Enamel dials..

Personally I like the guilloche dials of fpj and I consider them somewhat iconic. I wonder if the enamel dials will be the norm going forward
