Technical description


François-Paul Journe pays tribute to the research conducted on resonance by the great 18th century watchmakers, with the presentation of the first wristwatch resonance chronometer.

In 1983, François-Paul Journe took up the challenge with a first creation in the form of a pocket-watch, which did not yet perform according to his expectations. It would take fifteen more years of work for the watchmaker to gain the maturity and the experience to enable him to present an exclusive world première, the first resonance wristwatch.
