More about F. P. Journe Tourbillon Steel Tourbillon Souverain STEEL 38MM LIMITED TO ONLY 38 PIECES

This is a stainless steel F.P Journe Tourbillon Souverain. It has an alligator leather strap with an FPJ stainless steel tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. It has a pull out "rope-rim" winding crown with an exhibition sapphire display case back secured with 6 screws, and engraved with "F.P. JOURNE-TOURBILLON SOUVERAIN-ACIER-INVENIT ET FECIT (Created and made)," several hallmarks, and a serial number. The 38mm diameter solid three-body case, downturned lugs, and angled concave bezel, are polished. The dial is bronze finished, with the exposed Tourbillon cage at 9 o'clock, the Remontoir d'Egalite (the constant force energy mechanism) is at 6 o'clock, and the 42-hour power reserve arc is at 12 o'clock with a blued indicator hand. There is a recessed silver subsidiary "gasket-style" dial with a guilloche center for the time, blued dart hands, black Arabic numeral hour markers, and a black 60-minute railroad-style scale and Arabic numerals every 5-minutes. It's water resistant, and the 9.2mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

This F.P Journe Tourbillon Souverain has a mechanical manual winding Journe rose gold caliber 1498 movement. It's constructed with 25 jewels, cotes de Glashutte ribbing embellishment, an Incabloc anti-shock device, and a lightly engraved case back. It has a monmetallic balance, a lateral lever escapement, a "Gyromax" balance with 4 timing weights, and a self-compensating free-sprung Breguet balance-spring with Phillips terminal curve. The constant-force remontoir with an 18K gold wheel and blade spring, is controlled by a spinning vane that's armed once a second by the force of the mainspring, insuring a steady flow of power to the balance. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz).

The FP Journe Steel Tourbillon Souverain was originally part of a 5 watch set released in 2015 to commemorate the end of the 38mm case, and only 38 sets were produced. The remontoir is a supplementary buffer spring that is always kept wound by the main power source; it provides a constant force to the balance by releasing constant energy directly to the escapement.
