This “intelligent” watch welcomes a carpet of diamonds, interspersed with different coloured precious stones depending on the version.

F.P.Journe introduces a new version of the élégante Joaillerie set with diamonds and multi-color precious stones to sublimate women’s wrists.

The 40mm Platinum patented® flat Tortue case is pave-set with diamonds intertwined with rubies, blue sapphires, tsavorites or black diamonds and a powdered satin bracelet of matching colour. The dial is also set with similar stones and a diamond hour circle. The black diamond version features an opposite setting. The folding clap is also set with diamonds.

It took 8 years of research for F.P.Journe to develop this new horological concept with extremely precise requirements. The élégante by F.P.Journe was designed and conceived to provide this watch with a very long autonomy of 8 to 18 years depending if in daily use or in standby mode. It embodies the intelligent watch. The electromechanical movement 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 the watch is worn again, the hands automatically set themselves to the correct time, taking the shortest path, whether clockwise or counter-clockwise.
