Notes

François-Paul Journe, “Tourbillon Souverain”, “Remontoir d’Egalité avec Seconde Morte” The “Tourbillon Souverain”, a François-Paul Journe’s horological masterworks, is distinguished by its complications combining a one-minute tourbillon regulator with a “remontoir d’égalité”. The remontoir provides a constant force to the balance, hence maintaining an equal rate of force whether the watch is fully wound or not and increasing precision. In the second generation of the “Tourbillon Souverain” watches, such as the present lot, F.P. Journe added a “seconde morte”, a dead beat second indication.
