Journe, the disciple of F.P., will notice the familiar, clean, beautiful outline of the Quantième Perpétuel case, and feel relaxed. The case design of the early model has hardly changed and can be carried over to this reference. The crown adopts the brand’s rope-like grip, and the strap is tightened to avoid any inconspicuous protrusion. A close inspection of the lugs reveals a clear arc profile, which encourages the strap to wrap around the wrist with ergonomic efficiency.
As mentioned earlier, F.P. JourneQuantième Perpétuel is available in two metals and two sizes. This degree of choice is rarely compared with other brands. The 18K rose gold option is the 6N variety, showing a brilliant red hue.
Unlike most perpetual calendars, the strap has no corrector and looks clean and tidy. Except for the month display, all calendar indications can be adjusted using the three-position crown. The latter indication is adjusted using a corrector, which is neatly located under the lug at 1 o’clock and no correction is required.
The exhibit back cover provides a view of the internal self-winding movement.
The FPJ 1300-3 automatic movement is made of 18K rose gold (4N). This is consistent with most Maison watches, although some watches are made of aluminum. For watchmakers, gold is a very challenging material. Using a hand tool on the slippery strip of the absent slip, you can easily mark the soft metal, thereby damaging its original appearance. The advantage of using gold as a movement is that it is one of the least reactive metals available, so it is unlikely to be corroded. This shows Mr. Journe’s mentality. He did not seek the easiest way to create, but considered the life of the watch, eager to give the joy of ownership to future generations.
F.P. Journe Quantième Perpétuel has an eccentric 22K gold oscillating weight. This rotor is decorated with delicate guilloche patterns and winds the mainspring when rotating counterclockwise. Compared with two-way, the advantage of one-way is that the rotor is easier to control the subtle movement of the wrist and rotate at a vertigo speed. One of the reasons for the movement of the rotor is the use of a ball bearing system.

A single barrel can use enough energy to make the Review fake watch run autonomously for 160 hours (±10 hours). The frequency of the balance is 21,600 VpH (3Hz), and the movement contains 373 components, including 46 jewels.
Free spring balance is another attractive feature of CALJ FPJ 1300-3. Unlike an index-adjusted balance that changes the effective length of the hairspring to adjust the speed, in the case of a free hairspring balance, the effective length of the hairspring remains constant. On a free-hanging balance (sometimes called a variable inertia balance), the positions of various weights fixed on the balance wheel can be adjusted to change the moment of inertia and the speed of movement by default.
By using a free spring balance wheel, the hairspring is not easily affected by position and breathes concentrically. F.P. Journe chose to use formal cream mounted on the balance wheel spokes. The screws fixed on the rim of the balance wheel will generate turbulence, but the method of setting auxiliary air/weights inside the Maison improves the aerodynamic performance of the balance wheel, thereby increasing the accuracy.
The balance is equipped with a removable stud holder. If the watchmaker detects a “beat error” with a Witschi machine, it indicates that the clockwise and counterclockwise rotation of the balance wheel is different. In order to change the relative position of the pulse pin relative to the tilt pin, the complete balance must be repositioned. The movable stud holder allows the watchmaker to easily reposition the complete balance wheel without having to move the hairspring chuck on the hairspring balance. Although few Journe owners are unlikely to correct the beat error by themselves, this does prove the mechanical correctness of Maison.
Movement FPJ 1300-3 not only has excellent mechanical properties, it is also an object of beauty. The bottom plate is decorated with original pearl cotton. The bridge is decorated with circular Geneva corrugations, with chamfered grooves on the screw heads. The ends of the nails are rounded and polished for a shiny effect. The steel parts are polished and chamfered by hand. Watchmaking tradition and fine watchmaking etiquette have been proven in many ways.
François-Paul Journe does not approve of plagiarism, but tends to discover his own great path. Indeed, his company motto “Invention and Achievement” was invented and created by him, conveying his ability to think outside the box.
The nature of the perpetual calendar is very complicated. Unfortunately, some dials look messy and converge with each other. One of F.P.’s strengths, Journe Quantième Perpétuel, believes that every indication has room for breathing and the message is very clear. Moreover, nothing can inhibit the readability of the hour and minute hands, which can be said to be the most critical information.
The instantaneous jump can avoid any window showing partial views of letters and numbers. The date and date and (if applicable) the month change with an amazing dynamic that is almost invisible to the human eye. Journe’s mechanical wizard carefully arranged this sequence of dances.
François-Paul Journe put aside the habit of correctors in the strap and conceived his own, more elegant solution. The owner no longer needs to carry the correction pen when he needs correction instructions. The crown and hidden handle under the ears at 1 o’clock can meet the requirements.
Usually, complicated watches are housed in bulky cases. The moderate case diameter is 42mm, which matches the relatively thin and unobtrusive height of the case 11mm, which shows that complexity and neatness need not be mutually exclusive.
One of the reasons for the slim appearance of F.P. Journe Quantième Perpétuel is the FPJ 1300-3 movement. The total height of the movement is 5.2mm, which is a remarkable feat, considering the 373 parts neatly placed in a compact footprint. However, although the movement may be slender, it has not given up the high-end decoration of high-end watches.
This brings me to the introduction, the status of F.P. Journe watch. Normally, I always urge readers to wear watches, put them on their wrists, and have fun from charming hugs. However, for Quantième Perpétuel and any of Journe’s works, I feel compelled to make an exception.
F.P. Journe is suitable for daily wear, no need to bring children’s gloves for handling, just need proper maintenance, this is a typical feature of any watch. But every day I wear Quantième Perpétuel and feel silent. I think it will be a sacrifice. Usually, I don’t worry about occasional scratches, but the thought of removing a rustic watch from this Maison fake aaa watch Price makes my spine tremble.
There are several very talented watchmakers today, but François-Paul Journe is different, sitting in a higher position. In the next few decades, his work will be evaluated, and in my humble opinion, his legend will be on par with Berthold, Pogue, Daniels, Harrison and Huygens. At this juncture, I hope that his works can be found in many museums preserved under sterile conditions.
But even today, I think F.P. Journe Quantième Perpétuel should be fixed on the wall of the gallery. Its technical exquisiteness, practicality, unparalleled craftsmanship and most importantly its appearance make this timepiece an excellent masterpiece of art.
