F.P. Journe Earns Grand Prix Kudos

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

For the 6th time since 2002, Franois-Paul Journe has been recognized by the annual Grand Prix dHorlogerie of Geneva for horological creations of exception. The designer received the highest distinction, the Aiguille dOr (the Golden Hand), this year for the Centigraphe Souverain timepiece.

The Centigraphe Souverain is a spectacular new mechanical chronograph that represents a technical achievement in being the first wristwatch in the world to feature a single hand wound movement allowing to measure elapsed times from one hundredth of a second to 10 minutes on three subsidiary dials.

Since 2002, Franois-Paul Journe has received distinctions every year at the Grand Prix dHorlogerie of Geneva, except in 2007, while he was a member of the Jury:

2002 – Octa Calendrier – Special Jury Prize

2003 – Octa Lune – Prize for Best Mens Watch

2004 – Tourbillon Souverain – Golden Hand Aiguille dOr

2005 – Chronomtre Souverain – Prize for Best Mens Watch
