Lot Essay

The Tourbillon Souverain launched F. P. Journe’s illustrious career in 1999. It was the first wristwatch to combine a remontoire d’égalité (a constant force device that ensures a consistent supply of power from the mainspring to the escapement) with a tourbillon and established F. P. Journe's status as a technical and design genius.

Journe debuted the Tourbillon Nouveau (reference “TN”) in 2003 and this remained in production up until 2018. This TN reference also incorporated a dead beat seconds complication for the first time. The reference TN was replaced by the introduction of the Vertical Tourbillon in 2019.
