F.P.Journe Élégante Joaillerie Version

Luxury watch manufacture F.P.Journe introduces a new high jewellery edition of their élégante watch collection for women.

In this new Joaillerie edition, the 40 mm Platinum patented ® flat Tortue case of the new élégante watch is pave-set with diamonds intertwined with rubies, blue sapphires, tsavorites or black diamonds and a powdered satin bracelet of matching colour. The dial is also set with similar stones and a diamond hour circle. The black diamond version features an opposite setting. The folding clap is also set with diamonds.

The élégante by F.P.Journe boasts a very long autonomy of 8 to 18 years depending if in daily use or in standby mode. The electromechanical movement is fitted with a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4h30. After 30 minutes motionless, the watch switches to standby mode in order to save energy and its hands stop turning.

During the standby mode, the microprocessor continues to measure time, but the mechanical elements – gear train, rotors and hands, stop moving. As soon as the watch is worn again, the hands automatically set themselves to the correct time, taking the shortest path, whether clockwise or counter-clockwise.

The élégante is also available:-
-With a 40 mm Titanium case, with or without diamonds, luminescent dial and rubber strap, available in 7 colours.
-With a 40 mm 18K red Gold case, set with one row of diamonds, pave set or without diamonds.
-With a case in Platinum pave-set with diamonds, dial also pave-set.
-With a 48 mm oversized Titanium case with rubber strap in 9 colours or with diamond pave-set bezel, on karung silver white snake strap.
