F.P. Journe was founded and named after its renown watch-creator François-Paul Journe. The motto for the brand is “Invenit et Fecit”, which translates to invented and made. All watches in this company are entirely built within and continuously developing. Much like the “Resonance Chronometer”, Journe is constantly inventing new systems. Journe creates all of his watches starting with the dial and then designs the case and movement them around it. The art of watchmaking is more than a matter of making watches, it is a means of giving oneself up to the mechanics. Journe believes, it is about putting one’s artistry and culture of watchmaking into each timepiece and passing on the legacy of watchmaking through these creations.
