One of the most anticipated complications by the great F.P. Journe was the QP! It was first teased as an idea several years before actually designed, proto-typed and produced…causing much fanfare when it hit the market at last.
Besides showing the time, five day power reserve, day, month, and date, this watch also hasa leap year indicator at the center of the dial showing leap year. The unique internal chapter ring both separates it from other Journe designs and yet bonds it with a feeling of familiarity to any Journe collector. Strangely, it is one of the few dials that uses symmetry, however still in a most FPJ kind of way.
The platinum case, grey dial, finely crafted hands and dial all lend a hand in creating a piece that has all the superlatives we have come to expect and love in an F.P. Journe timepiece.
This watch appears Mint/Unworn. It is complete with box, strap, buckle and papers.

This desire for an F.P. Journe watch stems from the fact that Journe is quite simply considered one of the very top watchmakers alive today. Max Büsser, founder of the watch company MB&F said of Journe, “François-Paul is in my opinion the heir to Abraham-Louis Breguet. He has managed over the last twenty-five years to master and synthesize the past with the future of watchmaking. Locked in his head are quantities of projects that will amaze the connoisseurs.”
