Classic yet contemporary, combining tradition and modern technologies, the élégante by F.P.Journe embodies the magic inherent to all F.P.Journe creations and surely makes its mark on horological history.
The modern design and unusual shape of the flat Tortue shaped case, trademarked®, and its ergonomically designed rubber strap providing a perfect fit for all wrist sizes, blends with the performances of an exceptionally comfortable to wear electro mechanical watch.
The flat Tortue case shape adapts to every style from casual to chic. The ultra-light Titanium version or the Titalyt® one makes it also the ideal watch for a sporting activity. Completely water resistant to 30 meters, its screw down crown provides full safety during immersion in water. The red Gold and Platinum versions symbolize city élégance while the sophisticated Jewellery version is adorned with multicoloured precious stones sublimating ladies wrists.
The entirely luminescent dial of the Titanium version offers optimal legibility at night while the hands indicate the time as in a shadow play. During the day, it reminds the gleam of white mother of pearl. Beyond its very long autonomy, its electromechanical movement provides a great precision, a perfect asset to always be on time.
The élégante by F.P.Journe embodies the intelligent watch. This electromechanical watch is fitted with a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4h30. After 30 minutes motionless, the watch switches to standby mode in order to save energy and its hands stop turning.
During the standby mode, the microprocessor continues to measure time, but the mechanical elements – gear train, rotors and hands, stop moving. As soon as it is worn again, it automatically sets itself to the correct time; the hands taking the shortest path, whether clockwise or counter-clockwise.
