Luxury watch: FP JOURNE Chronomètre Optimum

This striking chronograph, whose name is already understood that it is a sophisticated work of high horology is mainly characterized by the practicality of its movement.

The new FP JOURNE Chronomètre Optimum, in fact, is nothing more than a new promise made ​​by FP Journe, which is not in his style to compromise on precision.

And so, after the unreachable Répétition Souveraine, characterized by a repetition of minutes with a slim stainless steel case out of the ordinary, that's winning the hearts of fans the new Optimum Chronomètre that, as mentioned above, embodies all the obstinacy of his creator, Monsieur Journe, to obtain the precision at all costs.

The practical mechanism which consists of this exclusive timepiece is characterized mainly by a  remontoir d'égalité, who does nothing but ensure a constant oscillation along with the new exhaust system patented called EBHP.
