Pre-Owned: F.P. Journe Chronometre Bleu Tantalum
The Chronomètre Bleu became, upon its launch in 2011, an instant hit with waiting lists piling up. Rumor has it that there is close to 27 years of production backlog and retailers are no longer taking orders.
Although the Chronomètre Bleu was to be Journe’s "entry level" timepiece, the watchmaker went against the current (as usual) by creating a watch that hit the industry with a thunderous bang and immediately hit a sweet spot with collectors.
The excitement delivered was through Journe’s innovative approach in creating a case made out of the highly rare and delicate to handle tantalum, with a blue/grey tint perfectly complementing the amazing sheen of the blue chrome dial.
The movement is Journe’s caliber 1304 executed in pink gold and displays an equally high standard of execution and finish witnessed on all F.P. Journe wristwatches.
In excellent condition and offering a full set, the present Chronomètre Bleu offers a rare opportunity that should not be passed.
