FP Journe Watches

Brief Brand History for :

Francois-Paul Journe graduated from the Ecole d'Horlogerie de Paris in 1976. A year later, he began working for his uncle in the antique watch restoration trade. In his early career, Journe created several complicated mechanisms inspired by the antique pieces he worked on in his daily life, including a mechanism for a planetarium and a tourbillon pocket watch. In 1985, he opened his first workshop in Paris. Journe continued to produce highly complicated clocks and watches, earning several prizes for his work. In 1989, he established a movement manufacture in Switzerland and released his first wristwatch two years later. In 1999, Journe began signing his watches with his name and the label “Invenit et Fecit,” denoting the impressive fact that Journe both invented and made his watch calibers. In the same year, Journe released the Tourbillon Souverain, a watch which uses a secondary power source closer to the escapement to increase accuracy. Since then, his watches have earned prizes at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève such as the Prix Spécial de Jury in 2002 and L’Aiguille d’Or in 2004 and 2008. A true manufacture, designing and producing virtually all of its movements, F.P. Journe has grown to great prominence in just a few decades. Production is highly limited while demand is relatively high, making watches by F.P. Journe prized by collectors the world over.
