Chronomètre Optimum 40/42mm Red Gold

Combining modern technology with the rich heritage of the knowledge of time-telling history left to us by the great Masters, the Chronomètre Optimum joins the ranks of the iconic timepieces created by F.P.Journe Haute Horlogerie in its constant quest for precision, innovation and excellence.

The Chronomètre Optimum contains a majority of exceptional components, here brought together for the first time in a watch: 2 barrels in parallel, the constant force remontoire, the revolutionary new high-performance bi-axial EBHP escapement, and natural dead-beat seconds. Due to these extraordinary technical achievements, this watch achieves the feat of telling time with near perfect accuracy.

The aesthetics of the hour, minutes and small seconds displays and the 70-hour power reserve harmonise perfectly with the wheel of the remontoire, visible on the dial. The Sapphire case back reveals the 18K Rose Gold movement, with its surprising natural dead-beat seconds framed by the seconds circle screwed to the movement’s bridges.
