More about Chronometre Resonance "Parking Meter" Platinum 40MM FULL SET
This is a .950 platinum F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance "PARKING METER" It's an extremely rare variant that includes a .950 platinum case and an alligator leather strap with a platinum tang buckle and scratch resistant sapphire crystals. It has two completely independent time zones, with the crown at 12 o'clock winding both movements and setting the hours and minutes of each dial. It has an exhibition sapphire display crystal case back secured with 6 screws and engraved with "FP. JOURNE – RESONANCE – INV. FECIT – PT 950," and a serial number. The 40mm diameter solid two-body case, curved lugs, and rounded stepped bezel, are polished/satin. This Resonance variant is sometimes known as the "parking meter," because of its whimsical profile and for the "gasket" at 9 o'clock which resembles a meter. The crown at 4 o'clock resets both seconds hands to zero, and it includes mechanical manual winding resonance controlled twin independent movements – two escapements working together in harmony – a radical design that took twenty years of research. The side and top crowns are engine-turned in "cordes de Marseille" texturing; the crown at 12 o'clock winds both movements, independently setting the hours and minutes of each twin subsidiary guilloche silver dial. The dials have printed Arabic numerals for hours and minutes with the register at 9 o'clock showing a completely new radial second 24-hour time zone, a radial minute scale in red, and the gasket on the right at 3 o'clock represents the home time zone. A combined power reserve with an indicator energizes both time zone displays, and the smaller circular subsidiary seconds sub-dials have zero reset. It has a 40-hour power reserve at full winding and the 8.8mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance "PARKING METER" has a mechanical in-house produced manual winding caliber 1499-3 CAR movement. It's constructed with 36 jewels, Cotes de Geneve embellishment, a shock absorber, and twin straight-line lever escapements. The bridges and plates are 18K red gold, and the resonating engine keeps both movements synchronized. It includes twin beryllium 4-arm gyromax balances with 4 adjustable timing weights, and self-compensating free-sprung balance springs, with both independent trains on a single plate. One escapement is fixed to a small platform that pivots around the second wheel with a rack-and-pinion mechanism that adjusts the distance between the two balances in order to find the most efficient synchronized position. The mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph. (3Hz). The F.P. Journe Chronometre Resonance "PARKING METER"was introduced in 2010.
