F.P.Journe's Chronometre Souverain Platinum  0 Comments


The FP Journe Chronometre Souverain is a watch enigma for me. For the longest time I thought that the watch was all hype. I thought it did not make sense that the watch costs over S$30k for a simple platinum watch (the only complication is its power reserve display). Even the Octa with multiple complications cost a few thousands less (as I recall the price).

Fortunately for me a good friend and gentleman allowed me to photograph his watch. By handling the watch and seeing it in real life, I can understand why its going to be a popular classic very quickly - and what the hype is all about. The case and dial seems intentionally designed to look antique. But the beauty is in its simplicity and balance of the dial despite the two indicators (sub second and power reserve). It has the inexplicable X factor that makes the watch really special. I have changed my opinion. This watch is wonderful despite the cost. For those who like simple classics and can afford this watch - you WILL be placing an order for it.
