F. P. Journe Chronomètre à Résonance

Complication / Type of Watch

Chronometer
Dual Timezone

For the 20th Anniversary of the Chronomètre à Résonance, F.P.Journe introduces a version with a special dial that will be produced only during the year 2019. The current general release version of the Chronomètre à Résonance is supplied with a digital dial for the left timezone and analog for the right. But the new Chronomètre à Résonance will show both timezones in analog, like the first generation watches.

 

 

Two models are proposed, an 18k 6N rose gold case with rose gold dial version and another in platinum case with a white gold dial. The two dials in Silver guilloche Clous de Paris indicating the hours and minutes can also be set on two different time zones.

The movement remains the same 18k rose gold mechanism.
