VIDEO: F.P. Journe Chronomètre Bleu
One Minute Watch with John Carter
One of the finest and most coveted time-only watches available on the market today, the F.P. Journe Chronomètre Bleu is a stunning example of the best of Swiss high horology. The Chronomètre Bleu is among F.P. Journe’s most popular wristwatches and has become increasingly sought-after over the years.
Dating to 2014, this piece features a slim and comfortable 39mm Tantalum case and deep blue chrome dial. This pre-owned watch includes its original boxes, manual, two extra straps, certificate and was just fully serviced by F.P. Journe.
Beautifully representing contemporary elegance, the F.P. Journe Chronometre Bleu offers an uncluttered approach to high precision watchmaking. This was the first F.P. Journe model to be crafted in tantalum, a rare dark grey metal that displays cool blue overtones. Tantalum is an extremely strong and beautiful metal, but it is rarely seen in watchmaking because it is very difficult to manipulate with a melting point of over 3,000* Celsius.
The blue chrome dial perfectly complements the case with its lacquered composition creating a striking blue mirror appearance. The dial has been redesigned with the latest trends and features cream-colored hands with large Arabic numerals.
The Chronometre Bleu features a beautifully designed and decorated movement made almost entirely from 18k pink gold, a unique signature of the brand. In the classic configuration of precision watches, the manual-wind movement features twin barrels that work in parallel to deliver the watch’s 56 hour power reserve.
