The CHRONOMETRE BLEU, a first approach of chronometric precision for young collectors, has turned out to be a trend leader and has inspired many watch-making brands. Its beautiful blue chrome dial has been the first to set the tone for a new variation of colours in high-end dials.
F.P.Journe reveals to be more than a source of inspiration in the high horology world for its constant search for precision and innovative calibres; it’s also the innate aesthetical sense of the brand, combining harmony, simplicity and elegance that has set a trend in the design of watch making. The bluish anthracite colour of the case in Tantalum, rare and precious metal, has also contributed to the success of this timekeeper in initiating the trend “Blue”.
The CHRONOMETRE BLEU mechanical movement oscillates at 21,600v/h. Twin barrels, in the classic configuration of precision watches, work in parallel to deliver stable power for much of its 56-hour full autonomy. The F.P.Journe free-sprung chronometer balance with inertia adjustment on four opposing weights is dynamically adjusted to six positions, with an emphasis on constancy of rate.
