The first ladies collection by F.P.Journe, a revolutionary horological concept.

Always ahead of his time, conciliating tradition, innovation and modern technology, F.P.Journe has developed a revolutionary horological concept for his first ladies collection. It was designed and conceived exclusively for women, with extremely precise technical specifications to provide this watch a long autonomy of 8 to 10 years in daily use and up to 18 years in standby mode.

8 years of development were necessary for this innovative movement that combines a great comfort of use and the performances of an electro-mechanical watch with feminity, elegance and precision. The “Élégante” allows the time to be stopped and started again. This is the dream of all watchmakers…

The concept of this electro-mechanical watch features a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4:30. When the “Élégante” is motionless, it goes in standby mode after 35 minutes to save its energy and the hands stop turning. During the standby mode, the microprocessor continues to keep time, while the mechanical parts – gears, rotors and hands – stop moving. When the “Élégante” is moved again, the hands sets themselves automatically to the current time, taking the shortest path – either clockwise or counter clockwise.
