Where the world unites for a moment in time

François Paul Journe

In the exclusive (rarefied) world of haute horology, François-Paul Journe explores the measurement of time for over 33 years with a unique sense of creativity and innovations. 

Independent contemporary master watchmaker, he draws on his historical knowledge and expertise to face the most daring horological challenges with passion, conceiving entirely new calibres with a timeless consistency. 

At the crossroad between Arts and Haute Horology, benchmark among the most prestigious watch companies, the independent F.P.Journe Manufacture is a world in itself, embodying excellence, know-how and innovation, in the respect of the haute horology tradition from which François-Paul Journe is the guardian. F.P.Journe produces its movements in 18K rose Gold, a first in the watch world and unique signature of the brand. Signed with the label ­Invenit et Fecit- (invented and made), they guarantee an exclusive in-house calibre, entirely invented, constructed, and assembled in the Geneva workshops.

Each year no more than 900 precision watches are manufactured here through an integrated production, with a team of specialized watchmakers and craftsmen, proud to work with a creator whose office is also his workbench. Original and timeless, F.P.Journe’s timepieces enhance the traditional values of haute horology; they are entirely in tune with their times and meet the intrinsic expectations of collectors and connoisseurs. Their unparalleled mechanisms such as the Chronomètre à Résonance, the Sonnerie Souveraine or the Tourbillon Souverain have earned F.P.Journe the world’s most prestigious horological awards.
