The “ Chronomètre Bleu ”

The new F.P.Journe Precision Chronometer Last F.P.Journe creation, the CHRONOMETRE BLEU proposes a new approach of high precision, with perfect chronometric virtues. The CHRONOMETRE BLEU is innovative with its 39 mm case made for the first time of Tantalum, a rare dark grey metal with blue overtones. Tantalum is a wonderful metal but rarely used in watchmaking as it is hard and very difficult to manipulate, due to its very high fusion temperature of 3800° and a density of 16.6. Tantalum is also precious as it is highly resistant to corrosion and wear.

The chrome blue dial is in perfect harmony with the colour of the case in a contemporary spirit. The F.P.Journe hands, matching the large cream-coloured Arabic numerals, mark the hours while the guilloché seconds dial at 7:30 enhances the mirror effect of the main dial.
