Amongst the 43 extraordinary watches that Only Watch 2015 will sell, we’ve as of now seen many intriguing ones (indeed, that’s an understatement…). Regardless of whether it’s the magnificent Laurent Ferrier Sector Dial , the Voutilainen GMT-6 or the future record-breaker Patek Philippe 5016A , all the watches we’ve seen so far are shocking and exceptionally alluring (which means conceivable colossal costs came to). Another brand just declared its support and, once more, it’s a shocker. Here is the Only Watch 2015 FP Journe Tourbillon Souverain with a blue chrome dial and a tantalum case.
This new cycle by FP Journe that will be proposed for Only Watch 2015 is again depending on a non-valuable material. It’s is by all accounts successive nowadays for brands that make remarkable or exceptionally restricted versions to come with the most complicated watches conceivable, with a top of the line level of finishing but with a low-end material for the case (tempered steel or titanium) rather than their standard platinum or gold highlighted on the ordinary creation pieces that we are more acquainted with. Anyway FP Journe, additionally prohibiting these valuable metals, goes for something very out-of-the-range and that he loves to utilize: tantalum.
The unique FP Journe Tourbillon Souverain for Only Watch 2015 is wearing a similar metal than the section level watch from the assembling, the Chronomètre Bleu. This dim dark metal with blue overtones, used without precedent for the setting of the Tourbillon Souverain, is known to be very hard and impervious to scratches (and to erosion) yet additionally complicated to machined and weighty. The motivation of the Chronomètre Bleu can likewise be found in the dial that shows a similar polished, reflect like blue completion. The dial is composed of numerous layers of veneer (cleaned in the middle of every application) mirrors light like (practically) no other dial created and seems as though chrome covered – in this way changing its character as per the shade of occurrence light from practically dark to clear blue.
The dial uncovered its managing organ at 9 out of an enormous opening. On the correct side of its dial, the FP Journe Tourbillon Souverain Bleu includes a sub-dial that shows the minutes and the hours. At 12 sits a force hold marker, with at 6 a little second sub-counter. Effectively great all alone, this watch is truth be told actually more unobtrusive than just being a tourbillon with unbalanced showcase. The managing organ is for sure connected to two complications. The first is a remontoir d’égalité that assumes the part of a steady power gadget. As we’ve seen with the Chronomètre Optimum , it allows the energy to be conveyed with a consistent power to the escapement. It delivers an indistinguishable segment of the accessible energy in one-second spans and hence giving stable sufficiency to the balance. The second complication is a loser second (a.k.a. seconde morte in French) that is straightforwardly connected to the remontoir and hence being a valid and momentary complication.
As regular with FP Journe, the development is altogether evolved, collected and finish in-house in Geneva, with haute horlogerie norms. The fundamental plate and the scaffolds are both machined from 18k red gold, similar to all the creation of FP Journe. This self-winding development brags 42 hours power reserve.
This one of a kind FP Journe Tourbillon Souverain Bleu in tantalum for Only Watch 2015 will be part of the Only Watch noble cause sale of 43 extraordinary watches occurring on 7 November 2015 in Geneva and hold by Phillips Auctions.
