Introduction

Created with the simple task of being F.P. Journe's entry-level offering, the Chronomètre Bleu paradoxically exhibits every facet of fine watchmaking that exists, irrespective of its modus operandi. Powered by F.P. Journe's in-house manually wound cal. 1304 movement with the brand's signature 18ct rose gold architecture housed within its 39mm tantalum case; the Chronomètre Bleu signifies the watchmaker’s motivation only to create watches deserving of the name of their dial. And what a dial it is.

A striking blend of blue, navy and sapphire shades, the Chronomètre Bleu's dial is perhaps the most versatile on the market today, with it transforming from one color to another at the flick of the wrist. With a railroad-track minute marker along its periphery, ornate Arabic numerals, and a sunken subdial at 7:30 with a concentric guilloche-engraved pattern, the Chronomètre Bleu's dial is impressive even if you look beyond its stunning shades of seaside sapphire.

CONFIDENCE IN SIMPLICITY

"An uncluttered approach to high precision" as F.P. Journe calls it, the Chronomètre Bleu's entire design is predicated on the simple idea that less is more, and you can't help but acknowledge that the legendary French watchmaker was right.

BLUE UNLIKE ANY OTHER

Famed for the depth of its eponymous dial, the Chronometre Bleu can exhibit a multitude of blues at once ranging from bright electric blue to dark navy and everything in between.

Our Perspective

Sky-rocketing to fame thanks to its tantalum case, versatile blue dial, and understated aesthetic, the Chronometre Bleu has become one of F.P. Journe's most sought-after watches for good reason - there simply isn't another watch like it today.
