About

AN EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION AVAILABLE ONLY FOR F.P.JOURNE WATCH OWNERS.

WITH A LIMITED PRODUCTION OF ABOUT 900 TIMEPIECES PER YEAR, F.P.JOURNE WANTED TO OFFER AN EVEN MORE EXCLUSIVE TIMEKEEPER THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE ONLY FOR OWNERS OF AN F.P.JOURNE WATCH. WITH A CASE MADE IN PLATINUM, THE MOST PRECIOUS METAL, F.P.JOURNE HAS CREATED A DISTINGUISHED BLACK DIAL THAT PERSONALIZES EVEN FURTHER THE ELEGANCE OF THE BRAND WATCHES. THE BLACK LABEL COLLECTION WAS BORN.

THE BLACK LABEL COLLECTION IS AVAILABLE ONLY IN THE F.P.JOURNE BOUTIQUES AND ESPACES.

The Chronomètre Souverain is a precision chronometer that was inspired by the Marine chronometers of the early 19th century. Constructed in the purest chronometric tradition, it has an extraflat movement that is 3.75 mm thick; its base plate and bridges are in 18K rose Gold. The two barrels of the homogeneous movement deliver a highly linear force to the escapement for over fifty-six hours. The escapement beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour.

With its traditional yet unexpected look, the Chronomètre Souverain has become a model of reference. It is particularly slim, at only 8.60 mm thick. The small seconds subdial is at left at 7 o’clock, while the 56-hour power reserve indication is located on the right at 3 o’clock. Owning a Chronomètre Souverain is the ultimate luxury for those who are mindful of the time still to come, and intend to enjoy it thoroughly.

The Chronomètre Souverain received the Best Men’s Watch Prize at the Geneva Grand Prix d’Horlogerie in 2005.
