élégante by F.P.Journe 48mm - a revolutionary horological concept
By SENATUS Editor | 21 February 2023

A revolutionary horological concept, the élégante by F.P.Journe 48mm, seen in Titanium with 418 brilliant cut diamonds.

The ingenious movement behind the élégante by F.P.Journe is a hybrid electro-mechanical movement that enters into a “stand-by” mode when the watch is not worn for 35 minutes.

A mechanical sensor located at 4 o’clock “awakens” the watch once it detects motion, adjusting the hands via the shortest path to the current time.

Such a design prolongs the autonomy of the battery from roughly two years to 8-10 years of daily use.
