In 1999, François-Paul Journe, after 5 years of deep reflection on his vision of contemporary watchmaking, presented a personal collection of wristwatches bearing the Latin wording: Invenit et Fecit (invented and made). It thereby certifies that each timepiece results from an entirely original conception and rigorous craftsmanship.
The Tourbillon Souverain, first tourbillon wristwatch with a remontoir came out in 1999. The year 2000, saw the Sonnerie Souveraine in homage to the new Millenium, and the Chronomètre à Résonance.
Thirty years of exceptional watch creations, by an exceptional watchmaker: F-P. Journe.
