F.P.JOURNE participated in the ONLY WATCH charity auction for the first time. Proceeds from the auction will be used to support scientific research to combat muscular dystrophy (AMM). To this end, F.P.JOURNE created the unique Tourbillon Souverain Bleu watch.
This is also the first time in history that there is a tourbillon with a tantalum alloy case. The name of this metal is derived from a Greek myth about ‘Torment of Tantalus’. Tantalum alloys are very challenging to manufacture due to their wear and scratch resistance. The watch is equipped with a bright chrome blue dial, which looks like a mirror, and its hue will change with the light. It is equipped with F.P.JOURNE’s own 18K rose gold movement, with constant force device and fixed second display. The ONLY WATCH charity auction will be held in Geneva on November 7, 2015.
