Footnotes

  • The stunning Chronomètre Bleu is the embodiment of F.P. Journe's characteristic style, innovation and rarity. It is one of the very few watches that were produced in the rare metal tantalum which is known for its difficulty to be crafted and fashioned. Tantalum is intrinsically a grey-blue in colour which Journe capitalises on by pairing with a rich blue dial which refracts the light. This combination makes a very appealing yet dignified look on the wrist and makes for a highly wearable watch for such an artisanal timepiece.
