F.P.Journe – A New Dial In Gold

By Zahra Al-Kateb

Ever since François-Paul Journe created timepieces, his dream was to manufacture them in Gold. The dream became reality in 2004, and F.P.Journe is today the only watch brand to produce its movements in 18K rose Gold. Before diving in the heart of its haute horology mysterious mechanical gear trains, one discovers first their face through their emblematic dials, made today in massive 18K Gold, with embossed mirror numbers integrated in the dial.

After a very careful preparation of the dial, including a refined sanding for the base to be perfect, a specific F.P.Journe silver layer is applied. The numbers are then surfaced with a diamond tool making them appear like mirrors on the dial. The last operation is the print transfer for the time indications and the F.P.Journe logo which requires up to 5 successive layers for a perfect bombé shape.

Completed with the F.P.Journe drop shaped hands, the new Gold dial is dedicated to the Chronomètre Souverain, the Octa Automatique Réserve and the Octa Automatique Lune. These 3 watches are available in the 10 F.P.Journe Boutiques.
