THE FIRST LADIES COLLECTION B Y F .P.J OURNE
A REVOLUTIONARY HOROLOGICAL CONCEPT

ALWAYS AHEAD OF HIS TIME, CONCILIATING TRADITION, INNOVATION AND MODERN TECHNOLOGY, F.P. JOURNE HAS DEVELOPED A REVOLUTIONARY HOROLOGICAL CONCEPT FOR HIS FIRST LADIES COLLECTION. IT WAS DESIGNED AND CONCEIVED EXCLUSIVELY FOR WOMEN, WITH EXTREMELY PRECISE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS TO PROVIDE THIS WATCH A LONG AUTONOMY OF 8 TO 10 YEARS IN DAILY USE AND UP TO 18 YEARS IN STANDBY MODE.

8 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT WERE NECESSARY FOR THIS INNOVATIVE MOVEMENT THAT COMBINES A GREAT COMFORT OF USE AND THE PERFORMANCES OF AN ELECTRO-MECHANICAL WATCH WITH FEMINITY, ELEGANCE, AND PRECISION. THE üLGANTEü ALLOWS THE TIME TO BE STOPPED AND STARTED AGAIN. THIS IS THE DREAM OF ALL WOMEN AND OF ALL WATCHMAKERS AS WELL.

THE CONCEPT OF THIS ELECTRO-MECHANICAL WATCH FEATURES A MECHANICAL MOTION DETECTOR VISIBLE ON THE DIAL AT 4:30. WHEN THE üLGANTEü IS MOTIONLESS, IT GOES IN STAND BY MODE AFTER 30 MINUTES TO SAVE ITS ENERGY AND THE HANDS STOP TURNING. DURING THE STANDBY MODE, THE MICROPROCESSOR CONTINUES TO KEEP TIME, WHILE THE MECHANICAL PARTS - GEARS, ROTORS AND HANDS - STOP MOVING. WHEN THE üLGANTEü IS MOVED AGAIN, THE HANDS SETS THEMSELVES AUTOMATICALLY TO THE CURRENT TIME, TAKING THE SHORTEST PATH - EITHER CLOCKWISE OR COUNTER CLOCKWISE.

ALL THE MECHANICAL ELEMENTS OF THE üLGANTEü MOVEMENT ARE MANUFACTURED BY F.P. JOURNE, BASED ON THE BRANDüS OWN CRITERIA OF EXCELLENCE IN STATE-OF-THE-ART HAUTE HOROLOGY. THE ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS WERE DEVELOPED BY A SWISS ENGINEER AND WERE MADE IN SWITZERLAND ACCORDING TO EXCLUSIVE AND EXACTING STANDARDS, WITH A MICROPROCESSOR SPECIFICALLY CREATED FOR THE FOR THE WATCH.

THE NOVEL LUMINESCENT DIAL OF THE üLGANTEü IN ITS TITANIUM VERSION RECALLS THE SHIMMERING SURFACE OF WHITE MOTHER-OF-PEARL. IT OFFERS MAXIMUM LEGIBILITY, BY DAY AND BY NIGHT. AT NIGHT THE HANDS COUNT OFF THE HOURS, AS IN A SHADOW THEATRE. AS A FINISHING TOUCH TO HIS FIRST LADIES COLLECTION, F.P. JOURNE HAS CHOSEN A FLAT TORTUE CASE, WHOSE DESIGN IS TRADEMARKED ?.

AS FRANOIS-PAUL JOURNE SAYS: üI CREATED THIS WATCH BECAUSE FOR 20 YEARS, WOMEN HAVE BEEN ASKING ME TO DESIGN A WATCH FOR THEM; A WATCH THAT WAS DIFFERENT AND COMFORTABLE TO WEAR, AND THAT SUITED THEIR NEEDS AND DESIRES. I THEREFORE CREATED THIS LONG-LASTING WATCH ESPECIALLY FOR THEM. TODAY THE üLGANTEü FEATURES THE ONLY ELECTRO-MECHANICAL MOVEMENT CONCEIVED AND CREATED FOR THE LUXURY MARKET AND OFFERING A TRUE VISION OF LUXURY.ü

THE CASE OF THE üLGANTEü IS AVAILABLE IN TITANIUM, WITH 6 COLOURED RUBBER PARTITIONS AND A MATCHING RUBBER STRAP: WHITE, ROSE, LIGHT BLUE, MIDNIGHT BLUE, CHOCOLATE, AND KHAKI GREEN. ITS ERGONOMIC SHAPE PERFECTLY EMBRACES THE WRIST. THE 18 CT. RE18 CT. RED GOLD VERSION COMES WITH A CHOCOLATE STRAP; THE PLATINUM PT 950 VERSION WITH A DARK BLUE STRAP. THE ¨¹LGANTE¨¹ IS AVAILABLE, WITH A DIAMOND PAV-SET VERSION. THE DIAL CAN ALSO BE SET WITH DIAMONDS UPON REQUEST.
