Official description

For the 10th anniversary of the élégante, François-Paul Journe pays tribute to his friend Serge Cukrowicz, co-founder of Montres Journe SA, and introduces the Gino’s Dream.

In the world of watchmaking, certain names resonate with particular intensity. Serge Cukrowicz, known to all as Gino, was one such figure. With his flamboyant dressing style, Gino favoured bright colours and out-of-the-ordinary outfits, always wearing the élégante on a yellow bracelet. These choices reflected his approach to life, colourful, lively and full of passion. Surrounded by his spouse Radhi, his children Gina and Dylan and his step-children Shawn and Zane, Gino passed away on 6 May 2021 in Singapore. Named in his memory, François-Paul Journe dedicates the élégante Gino’s Dream to him, a model directly inspired by his vibrant temperament.

With its 48 mm Flat Tortue® case in Titanium or Titalyt®, the élégante Gino’s Dream is adorned with a bezel set with 52 baguette-cut ceramic glass stones in rainbow hues. It is powered by the Calibre 1210, an innovative electromechanical movement presented in 2014, after 8 years of research and development, which has the power to suspend time and restart it; the absolute dream of every watchmaker. After 35 minutes of immobility, the watch goes into sleep mode to save energy. As soon as it is worn again, thanks to the motion detector at 4:30, it resets to the exact time by the shortest path, clockwise or anti-clockwise, providing over 8 years of autonomy in normal use. This revolutionary watchmaking concept provides the heartbeat of this harmonious composition, which captures and reflects the light.

The élégante Gino’s Dream is more than an anniversary watch; it is a tribute to a man whose fervour left its mark on F.P.Journe.
