F.P Journe Tourbillon Souverain Regency with a Brass Movement and an engraved Regency dial, a confirmed UNIQUE PIECE from 2001. According to research this is the only white gold Regency dial ever produced in a 38mm platinum case with a brass tourbillion movement making it undoubtedly one of the most important tourbillions ever made by the F.P Journe manufacture. It is known that 5 Regency dials were set to be made, with the first 3 being cased in 38mm rose gold, followed by this example in platinum. Unfortunately, the engraver passed away shortly thereafter and no further Regency dials were made for 38mm cased watches. In the end, only 4 examples were made in total. 950 platinum case on a strap with a matching 950 platinum buckle, legendary manual wind Brass F.P. Journe caliber 1498 movement, 18k white gold dial is hand engraved and decorated with the the "Regence" motif which pays homage to clockmakers of the 18th century and takes the engraver two full days to produce, guilloche silver subdial for hours and minutes featuring Journe's stylized Arabic numerals, blued hands, 42-hour power reserve with indicator at 12 o'clock, diameter: 38mm, thickness: 8.8mm, serial number: 1XX-01T.

A smaller circular Remontoir d'Egalite (the constant force energy mechanism) is at 6 o'clock and a 42-hour power reserve arch with a blued delta hand is at 12 o'clock.

It is one of the most important tourbillions ever made by the F.P Journe manufacture. These watches were offered to F.P. Journe's closest friends and clients in order to raise capital for his new manufacture. It was purchased from the original owner.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
