Sunday Rewind The History Of FPJ Tourbillons (By FPJ Himself)
This past week, we saw a couple of extraordinary watches from F.P. Journe hammer for an amazing measure of cash at Phillips Geneva Watch Auction XI . One of the two models was a Souscription Tourbillon Souverain, and the offering on this awful kid (part 101) went right to an amazing $1,400,000. That is an immense outcome and, while Journe’s watches have consistently been collectible, a 7-figure part would recommend things are certainly warming up.
For some setting on these outcomes (and a more critical gander at what makes F.P. Journe observes so exceptional), we figured it very well may be enjoyable to rewind the tickers to September 2016 when Ben distributed a Reference Points on the history of Journe Tourbillons as told by the man himself, F.P. Journe. It is a story as unmistakable and itemized as the watches he makes, and it’s intriguing to think back under 30 years and discover a watch gathering world that pre-dates our own by a few quick moving and dynamic generations.
