F.P. Journe’s Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante Only Watch (Lot 32) has been the timepiece we’ve heard the most positive comments on in the lead up to the auction. Just take one glance at the 18K rose gold split-second chronograph movement and you will know why.
Interestingly, Barbier-Mueller, which is the name of a Genevan museum that was founded in 1977, has donated this timepiece which “pays homage to fine Genevan watchmaking and to the decorative arts.” The Mosaique by Barbier-Muelle – as you can see below – is also powered by an 18K rose gold movement produced at the Geneva-based watch manufacture F.P. Journe.
