Originally debuted in 2000, Swiss luxury watchmaker F.P.Journe is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its highly-complex Chronomètre à Résonance this year with a pair of watches carrying a completely new movement constructed in rose gold.

Now available in both 40mm or 40mm sizes, the new duo comes encased in either a platinum or 18k 6N rose gold body, paired with a white gold or rose gold dial respectively, giving collectors much more flexibility to discover their perfect match. Two larger subdials grace the face of the watch indicating 12 and 24-hour times, both of which feature a small seconds at the bottom, while a power reserve indicator sits on top of the delicate dial. Most significantly, the watch is now powered by a brand new in-house 62-jewel manual-wind calibre 1520 almost entirely made in rose gold, boasting a power reserve of 42 hours and operating at 21,600 vibrations per hour. As one of the series’ most complicated watches yet, the timepiece can be operated via the two crowns at 2 and 4 o’clock, with the first one allowing you to wind the watch or adjust the time, while pulling the second crown out will reset the seconds.

For those interested, the F.P.Journe Chronomètre à Résonance 20th anniversary editions will be available mid-2020, with prices at $106,800 USD for the 18k rose gold edition and $110,600 USD for the platinum version. Head over to the company’s website to learn more now.

Elsewhere in watches, IWC has unveiled its 2020 Portugieser Yacht Club Moon & Tide watch.
