MY VISIT TO F. P. JOURNE PARIS
Watch and Bullion
As a special treat I was led into what is arguably the heart of the store, the in-house workshop. Here the watchmaker can take care of everything but minute repeaters, and that at an astonishingly fast rate of 6 weeks for a complete service.
To round things of we got to sit down and get our hands on some watches. I was given an Octa Automique, which was the world’s first mechanical movement with automatic winding and a power reserve of over 120 hours.
