Christie's announces largest-ever thematic auction of F.P. Journe watches

Next May 2023 Christie's will host "The Art of F. P. Journe", the largest thematic auction of F.P. Journe watches ever organised.
On next May 12, at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva, Christie's will host "The Art of F. P. Journe", the largest thematic auction of F.P. Journe watches ever organised.

Christie's "The Art of F. P. Journe"

Never before an array of forty F.P. Journe timepieces had been brought together in one auction to celebrate a single independent watchmaker. 

Among the others, the auction will include notable references such as the Tourbillon Souverain with a jade dial, the platinum Chronomètre à Résonance, and the Centigraphe Souverain with a "Ferrari red" dial. Additionally, the auction will include other distinctive models, such as the Octa Calendrier with a mother-of-pearl dial, the Chronomètre Souverain Dubai edition, and the titanium Octa "LineSport" with a deep blue dial. The auction, taking place on May 12th in Geneva, provides a unique opportunity to acquire a timepiece from one of today's most respected watchmakers.
 
Below, more details on these highlights.

A platinum Tourbillon Souverain with constant force remontoire, dead beat seconds and a solid platinum bracelet made even rarer for its jade dial, of which only a few examples exist. Circa 2018. Estimate: CHF 500,000-1,000,000

F.P Journe Tourbillon Souverain platinum with jade dial

When launching his brand, F.P. Journe introduced a ‘subscription’ model, with 20 of his clients committing to purchase timepieces made under his name with the resulting Souscription Tourbillon numbered 1 to 20. Shortly after, the Chronomètre à Résonance was produced, and F.P. Journe reserved the initial 20 numbers for those clients who had previously subscribed, offering them the opportunity to acquire a Souscription Résonance with matching engraved numbers. The auction will offer an early example of the ‘Pré-Souscription’ platinum Chronomètre à Résonance featuring a pink gold dial with power reserve indicator. Circa 2000. Estimate: CHF 500,000-1,000,000

F.P Journe Chronometre a Resonance Souverain platinum with pink gold dial

A Centigraphe Souverain platinum chronograph wristwatch with 100th of a second, 20th seconds, 10-minute registers, a red chrome dial and platinum bracelet.  Only available upon special request, this “Ferrari red dial” edition of the Centigraphe Souverain unites the worlds of high horology and motor sports. Circa 2010. Estimate: CHF 400,000-600,000

F.P Journe Centigraphe Souverain platinum with Ferrari red dial

A platinum Octa Calendrier with a black mother of pearl dial, one of only 15 pieces made for the Singaporean retailer ‘Sincere Fine Watches’. Circa 2006. Estimate: CHF 150,000-250,000

F.P Journe Octa Calendrier platinum with mother-of-pearl dial

Signed F.P. Journe, this platinum limited edition wristwatch with green dial is one of only 99 examples of the Chronomètre Souverain produced in 2020 to celebrate the opening of F.P. Journe’s first Dubai boutique on October 30th, 2019. Circa 2021. Estimate: CHF 60,000-120,000

F.P Journe Chronometre Souverain platinum with green dial

A rare version of F.P. Journe’s ultra-light titanium Octa ‘LineSport’ automatic wristwatches with a blue dial that was made in a limited edition of only 8 pieces. A portion of the sale result of this watch will be donated to “Only Watch”, benefitting the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies, for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy . Circa 2019. Estimate: CHF 60,000-120,000
