We are pleased to share with you this short movie of the exhibition highlights, dedicated to all admirers of haute horology who could not travel to Geneva for the event.
Discover a display of Résonance prototypes, rare pieces and limited series, from the early 1983 pocket watch movement to the new 2020 Chronomètre à Résonance with 2 « remontoirs d’égalité ».
The first observations pertaining to the natural resonance phenomenon were made by 17th century Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens, followed by 18th century horologists Antide Janvier and Abraham-Louis Breguet, who developed timepieces based upon this principle. Since then, François-Paul Journe presented his first Résonance wristwatch in 2000, it was baptized Résonance under the patented brand name Résonance®.
The F.P.Journe Chronomètre à Résonance is the only wristwatch in the world that utilizes the natural physical phenomenon of resonance without any mechanical transmission, previously known as double pendulum or double balance.
