Please note this lot is the property of a private individual.
The current lot features one of F.P Journe's most innovative movements which took 8 years of research and development. This electro-mechanical watch is equipped with a mechanical motion detector visible on the dial at 4:30. When the watch is unworn and motionless, the hands will stop turning after 35 minutes and the watch goes in standby mode to save energy. The mechanical parts - gears, rotors, and hands - stop moving while the microprocessor continues to keep the time. When the watch is worn again, the hands set themselves automatically to the current time, taking the shortest path either clockwise or counterclockwise.
