2018 Revolution Round-Up: piaget replica watches

Let’s begin by addressing the elephant in the room: Chanel’s acquisition of a minor stake in F.P. Journe. The news broke in mid-September and threw the watch industry into a tizzy. F.P. Journe, whose company motto “Invenit et Fecit” piaget replica watches(Latin for invented and made), represented the pinnacle of in-house design, construction and mechanical ingenuity, so for many horophiles the move came somewhat as a surprise. Here at Revolution though, we argue that it’s something we should have seen coming. Chanel has demonstrated its support for independents in the past with its part-possession of Bell & Ross and its fruitful partnership with Romain Gauthier. To see F.P. Journe gaining the support of such an esteemed company can only mean good things in the years to come.

The dial of the The F.P. Journe Chronomètre Holland & Holland But let us backtrack a little, and revisit F.P. Journe’s creations this year. The Chronograph Monopusher Rattrapante was inspired by the unique, seven-figure Only Watch Monopusher Split-Seconds Chronograph, which fetched 1.15 million Swiss francs at the auction to become one of the most expensive independent timepieces ever sold at auction in 2017. The new chronograph, while not entirely the same as the unique Only Watch piece, is still a welcome addition to F.P. Journe’s LineSport collection, housing the new in-house caliber 1518 in a rubber-accented case of red gold, platinum or titanium. For more on the watch, as well as exclusive close-up photos, see here.

The Only Watch timepiece wasn’t the only publicly known unique piece F.P. Journe created. This year, the watchmaker announced a second unique spilt seconds chronograph that was made for Prince Albert II’s Charity Gala in Singapore. In an interview with the watchmaker himself, he tells us how he and Michael Tay, the group managing director of The Hour Glass, came up with the new unique piece for charity. “It was a discussion,Tag Heuer Aquaracer 500M Replica because I shared these moments with Michael Tay. Since it was for Singapore, I said we’ll make it in blue because everybody likes blue and he said, ‘I have an idea maybe with special Chinese characters.’ He gave me the font and I took it and redrew the dial and then we made the dial in our workshops at Les Cadraniers de Genève.” The timepiece sold for US$290,000 at the charity ball in November.
