F.P.Journe _ Official Watchmaker, France-China 50

Frenchman François-Paul Journe set out on his horological journey in Paris in 1977, constructing his own Tourbillon watch – entirely by hand. 30 years later, the F.P.Journe Manufacture has become an international legend, with 10 F.P.Journe Boutiques, including one in Paris, one in Hong Kong and one in Beijing. François-Paul Journe is the only major independent horological creator to be recognised by all his peers. Nearly 900 exclusive mechanical watches, with an 18 ct. rose gold movement are produced each year in the Manufacture, a universe where haute horology, the fine arts, and excellence become one. His innovations have won him all the major prestigious international horological awards.
