F.P.Journe élégante Titanium Version

The élégante by F.P.Journe is now also housed in a grade 5 Titanium case with an exclusive Titalyt ® treatment that enhances its identity within the élégante collection by F.P.Journe. The procedure, in which Titanium is subjected to electro-plasma oxidation, improves the material’s hardness and resistance to wear and corrosion. This new version, recognisable due to its unique colour, has a stylish look that flatters all styles – casual, sports chic, or formal. It is available in 2 versions – 40 mm and 48 mm.

In the dark, the luminescent dial of the Titanium version offers optimal legibility while the hands indicate the time as in a shadow play. During the day, it has the beautiful gleam of white mother of pearl.

It took 8 years of research for F.P.Journe to develop this revolutionary horological concept with extremely precise requirements, leading to this innovative horological concept. Fitted with a revolutionary electro-mechanical movement, the élégante by F.P.Journe provides more than 8 years autonomy with the performance of a watch that is exceptionally comfortable to wear.

After remaining motionless for 35 minutes, the watch switches to standby mode in order to save energy, and its hands stop turning. In standby mode, the microprocessor specially created for this watch continues to measure the time. When the motion detector visible on the dial at 4h30 is activated, the élégante automatically sets itself to the correct time, with the hands taking the shortest path, whether clockwise or counter-clockwise. The élégante by F.P.Journe allows time to be stopped and started again – the absolute dream of all watchmakers.

The élégante Titalyt ® is available in the 9 F.P.Journe Boutiques, the 7 Espaces as well as from F.P.Journe authorized retailers.
