Details & Specifications

A REVOLUTIONARY HOROLOGICAL CONCEPT

THE REVOLUTIONNARY ELECTRO-MECHANICAL MOVEMENT OF THE “ÉLÉGANTE”, ITS VERY LONG AUTONOMY AND ITS PERFECT FIT ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN A 48MM CASE FOR MENS’ WRISTS OR LADIES WHO LIKE TO WEAR OVERSIZED WATCHES.

AS A FINISHING TOUCH TO HIS FIRST ELECTRO-MECHANICAL COLLECTION, F.P.JOURNE HAS CHOSEN A FLAT TORTUE CASE, WHOSE DESIGN IS TRADEMARKED ® AND ESTABLISHES A CONTEMPORARY URBAN STYLE.

ALWAYS AHEAD OF HIS TIME, CONCILIATING TRADITION, INNOVATION AND MODERN TECHNOLOGY, F.P.JOURNE HAS DEVELOPED A REVOLUTIONARY HOROLOGICAL CONCEPT. THIS ELECTRO-MECHANICAL COLLECTION WAS DESIGNED AND CONCEIVED WITH EXTREMELY PRECISE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS TO PROVIDE THIS WATCH A LONG AUTONOMY OF 8 TO 10 YEARS IN DAILY USE AND UP TO 18 YEARS IN STANDBY MODE.

8 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT WERE NECESSARY FOR THIS INNOVATIVE MOVEMENT THAT COMBINES A GREAT COMFORT OF USE AND THE PERFORMANCES OF AN ELECTRO-MECHANICAL WATCH WITH ELEGANCE AND PRECISION. THE “ÉLÉGANTE” ALLOWS THE TIME TO BE STOPPED AND STARTED AGAIN. THIS IS THE DREAM OF ALL WATCHMAKERS…

THE CONCEPT OF THIS ELECTRO-MECHANICAL WATCH FEATURES A MECHANICAL MOTION DETECTOR VISIBLE ON THE DIAL AT 4:30. WHEN  THE “ÉLÉGANTE” IS MOTIONLESS, IT GOES IN STAND BY MODE AFTER 35 MINUTES TO SAVE ITS ENERGY AND THE HANDS STOP TURNING. DURING THE STANDBY MODE, THE MICROPROCESSOR CONTINUES TO KEEP TIME, WHILE THE MECHANICAL PARTS - GEARS, ROTORS AND HANDS - STOP MOVING. WHEN THE “ÉLÉGANTE” IS MOVED AGAIN, THE HANDS SETS THEMSELVES AUTOMATICALLY TO THE CURRENT TIME, TAKING THE SHORTEST PATH - EITHER CLOCKWISE OR COUNTER CLOCKWISE.

ALL THE MECHANICAL ELEMENTS OF THE “ÉLÉGANTE” MOVEMENT ARE MANUFACTURED BY F.P.JOURNE, BASED ON THE BRAND’S OWN CRITERIA OF EXCELLENCE IN STATE-OF-THE-ART HAUTE HOROLOGY. THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS ARE MADE IN SWITZERLAND ACCORDING TO EXCLUSIVE STANDARDS, WITH A MICROPROCESSOR SPECIFICALLY CREATED FOR THE WATCH.

THE LUMINESCENT DIAL OF THE “ÉLÉGANTE” IN THE TITANIUM VERSIONS RECALLS THE SHIMMERING SURFACE OF WHITE MOTHER-OF-PEARL. IT OFFERS MAXIMUM LEGIBILITY, BY DAY AND BY NIGHT. AT NIGHT THE HANDS COUNT OFF THE HOURS, AS IN A SHADOW THEATRE.

THE 48MM CASE OF THE “ÉLÉGANTE” IS AVAILABLE IN TITANIUM WITH 10 COLOURED RUBBER STRAPS: WHITE, YELLOW, ORANGE, BURGUNDY, MIDNIGHT BLUE, DEEP BLUE, KHAKI GREEN, GREY, ANTHRACITE AND BLACK. THE ERGONOMIC SHAPE OF THE STRAPS PERFECTLY EMBRACES THE WRIST.
