Farewell to the emblematic Sonnerie Souveraine

Anticipating the presentation of a new grand complication in 2019, the emblematic Sonnerie Souveraine F.P.Journe will no longer be in the catalogue as from December 31, 2018.

Clients are invited to place their order during the year 2018 to acquire this already rare and unique watch that will thus become a collector’s timepiece. The F.P.Journe Manufacture will of course honor all orders placed by its clients.
