More about Chronometre Resonance Platinum Gold Dial 38MM BRASS MOVEMENT PATRIMOINE

This is a .950 platinum F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance Brass Movement "Dual Time" 38mm. It includes an alligator leather strap with a platinum tang buckle and scratch resistant sapphire crystals. This chronometer has resonance controlled twin independent movements with two escapements working together, a radical design that took twenty years of research. The side and top crowns are engine-turned in "cordes de Marseille" "rope" grips; the crown on the case band at 12 o'clock winds both movements and sets the hours and minutes of each dial independently, while the crown at 4 o'clock synchronizes and resets both seconds hands to zero. There is an exhibition sapphire display crystal case back secured with 6 screws, engraved with "FP JOURNE – RESONANCE – INV.FECIT – PT 950," and a serial number. The 38mm diameter round two-body solid case, curved lugs, and convex bezel are polished. The dial is warm champagne gold with the twin silver dials with guilloche centers, with black Arabic numerals, railway-style scales, and blued indicator hands are set within two white gold screwed "gasket" shapes, each with 3 white gold screws. Twin small constant running seconds dials are at the 6 o'clock of the time dials. There is a fan-shaped combined 40-hour power reserve with a blued indicator hand at 12 o'clock, it's water resistant to 25 meters/80 feet, and the 8.8mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance Brass Movement "Dual Time" 38mm has twin mechanical manual winding F.P. Journe caliber 1499-2 movements. It's rhodium plated with Cotes de Geneve embellishment, and it's constructed with 36 jewels, a shock absorber system, twin straight-line lever escapements, twin beryllium 4-arm balances with 4 adjustable timing weights, and self-compensating free-sprung balance springs, with both independent trains on a single plate. One escapement is fixed to a small platform that pivots around the second wheel with a rack-and-pinion mechanism that adjusts the distance between the two balances in order to find the most efficient synchronized position. The bridges and plates are 18K red gold, and the resonating engine keeps both movements synchronized. The mechanism oscillates at 21,600 vph (3Hz). The F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance Brass Movement "Dual Time" 38mm was a groundbreaking timepiece introduced in 1999. It won the Watch of the Year jury award in Japan in 2003, and it received the grand complication prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve in 2010.

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!
