Swiss fine watch brand F.P.Journe has teamed up with heritage gun maker Holland & Holland to created a limited edition series of watches celebrating the history and craftsmanship of these storied companies.
The 66 piece limited edition run was created using two Damascus steel gun barrels from Holland & Holland’s archive, each of which dates back over 100 years. The two barrels were registered by hand in the company’s books. Barrel No. 1382, dating to 1868, yielded 38 dials, while barrel No. 7183, dating to 1882, produced 28 dials.

The distinctive pattern of Damascus steel, which is made via a unique method of twisting the metal, can be seen on the dial of each timepiece and is complemented by a 39mm steel case, a reference to the steel used for the gun barrels. The choice of this diameter was made to underline the uniqueness of the timepiece, since this size had never been used before. Only 38- and 40-millimeter cases were used at the manufacture.
The choice of calibre 1304 is also meaningful. This caliber is a precision chronometer powered by two parallel spring barrels.

The technology was used in marine chronometers at about the time these guns were being manufactured.
The Chronomètre Holland & Holland is accessible to F.P. Journe and Holland & Holland collectors through an application process. This Limited Series is exclusively available from F.P.Journe Boutiques and Holland & Holland Boutiques (London – Dallas). And , don’t forget to show your credentials to get hold of one though because all 66 pieces are reserved for serious collectors.
