Footnotes

  • François-Paul Journe introduced the Zodiaque in 2005 with a limited edition of 150 pieces made in platinum. He wished to create a graphic allusion to the celestial sphere whose stars have always served as points of reference for mankind in calculating time. Furthermore, the Zodiac still has an influence on human beliefs. The watch dial carries an outer ring displaying the months and the corresponding signs of the Zodiac. Driven by the large date system, the mark at noon corresponds to the annual progress of the Sun past the stars.
