Ever heard of a watch that costs a half a million bucks and has a waiting list of three years? That’s what F.P Journe has created. The Sonnerie Souveraine retails for a hefty $560,000 because of it’s ability to chime at the hours and quarters just like a grand clock.
What’s the big deal you ask? The big deal is getting an automatic watch to chime from the limited supply of energy of just your wrist movements. The creation of the Sonnerie Souveraineis has been heralded as amazing horological (study of the science and art of timekeeping devices) achievement.
So get on that waiting list and impress your friends when the hours strike. Ding-dong-dong!
