More about Chronometre Optimum Platinum BLACK LABEL 40MM 2021
This a platinum F.P. Journe Chronometre Optimum. It has an alligator leather strap with a platinum F.P. Journe tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. There is an exhibition sapphire display case back secured with 6 screws, and engraved with "F.P. Journe – PT 950 (Platinum) - Chronometre Optimum – Inv. Fecit". It has an oversized, knurled winding crown, and the 40mm diameter solid three-body case, downturned lugs, and angled bezel are polished. The dial is black with a guilloche center, and an off-center time dial with black Arabic numeral hour markers around a railroad-style minute track. It has blued epee hands and around the outside is a 60-minute track with Arabic numeral minute markers every five-minutes. At 11 o'clock is an open aperture that shows the visible wheel of the constant-force remontoir. There is a 70-hour power reserve with a 50-hour arc between 7 and 8 o'clock (it will run without loss of amplitude for 50-hours). There is a subsidiary running seconds dial at 9 o'clock, adjacent to the time dial, and surrounded by a single raised platinum gasket. It's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet, and the 9.8mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This F.P. Journe Chronometre Optimum has a mechanical manual winding FP Journe caliber 1510, that's made of solid 18K rose gold. It's constructed with 44 jewels, 240 components, and it has an EBHP direct impulse biaxial escapement that utilizes 2 wheels without requiring any oil or lubricants (patent EP11405210.3). It has a double barrel with two springs, a shock absorber device, and a constant-force remontoir made of Titanium (patent EP1528443.A1). The remontoir d'egalite system stores and releases energy in precise 1-second intervals. It has a monometallic balance with a spiral with a Phillips curve for enhanced equilibrium that's adjusted for isochronism and 6 positions. Visible through the sapphire back is a dead beat seconds indicator circle that's screwed onto one of the bridges and connected to the remontoir. The F.P. Journe Chronometre Optimum Black Label was introduced as an exclusive collectible for F.P. Journe owners and is only sold through F.P. Journe Boutiques.
