FP Journe Manufacture Presents ‘Chefs D’oeuvre de l’Horlogerie Francaise’

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Francois-Paul Journe is synonymous with the best in modern watch-making, and now his atelier in Geneva is also the setting where connoisseurs will see some of the best examples of historical time pieces.

Through February 6 his manufacture, at 17 rue de l’Arquebuse in the center of the city, is presenting “Chefs D’oeuvre de l’Horlogerie Francaise,” an exhibit of 12 unique French-made clocks that were created between 1770 and 1851. They are owned by Italian collector Ausano Musa, and include masterpieces created by Lepine, Louis Constantine Detouche, Bouchet and Robin. Among the examples are clocks that were made for King Louis XVI and Empress Josephine.

The F.P. Journe manufacture is an ideal setting for this exhibit, as its permanent centerpiece is a three-meter-tall clock created in 1855 by French horologist Detouche.
