F.P. Journe Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante

Specialist Picks • 24 Jul 2021


One of our favourite chronographs of recent is the remarkably light F.P. Journe Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante. Available in 3 versions: one in Platinum PT 950, one in 18 K red Gold and one in Titanium grade 5. The case of all variants measures 44 mm in diameter by 12 mm thick and houses the innovative monopoussoir split-second chronograph movement with a large date. The svelte Titanium version houses a movement made in an Aluminium alloy – a material rarely used in calibre making.

Legible Dial Design & Innovative Bracelet 

The matching bracelet features distinct rubber inserts. Fixed to the bracelet links to protect the watch from friction on smooth surfaces, like bumpers of vintage automobiles. The links attached to the case are also articulated to adapt to the different wrist sizes with an adjustable folding clasp.

The Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante features an impressive power reserve of 80 hours. Making it possible to efficiently use the chronograph with the rattrapante function after 2 days. Every element has been designed to enhance legibility, including the oversized date window (measuring 5.20 x 2.80 mm). Other date windows look shy and diminutive in comparison.

Inspired by Only Watch 2017

The dial of the Titanium model is made of an aluminium alloy of anthracite colour with appliques numerals with Superluminova. The two chronograph counters are engraved and in sapphire, allowing the user to admire the movement while on the wrist. Unlike the precious metal variants, the hands and applied numerals are coated in Superluminova.

The inlaid tachymetric bezel encircling the dial is made of ceramic and sports the same typography as seen on F.P. Journe’s 2017 Only Watch timepiece.

Under The Hood – The Calibre 1518

This manually wound calibre 1518 was conceived by F.P.Journe, and, as usual, is entirely made in F.P. Journe’s  Manufacture. F.P.Journe perpetuates the age-old watchmaking tradition, whereby a single watchmaker is tasked with all the assembly stages from beginning to end.

Also inspired by the Chronograph made for Only Watch, calibre 1518 features a chronograph direct gearing with a rocking pinion avoiding the jump of the hand at the start.
