Now this is my kind of collaboration. The new F.P. Journe Chronomètre Holland & Holland watch made in collaboration with the 182 year-old British gunmaker Holland & Holland. Holland & Holland makes handmade, bespoke guns for the upper crust — and by that I mean $100,000+ shotguns!!! But boy are these guns pretty and with hand craftstmanship that anyone can appreciate. They also make clothing and other select accessories, and oh, yeah — you can also get a “Holland & Holland” edition Range Rover.
The new F.P. Journe Chronomètre Holland & Holland features a unique dial made out of a piece of Damascus steel taken from a pair of antique Holland & Holland gun barrels…nice. The two barrels in fact date themselves back to the late 1800’s: Barrel No. 1382 from 1868 and Barrel No. 7183 from 1882.
The watch comes in a 39mm stainless steel case (unusual for F.P. Journe watches). Inside is Journe’s caliber 1304, made of red gold and immaculately finished including a special Holland & Holland baseplate engraving.
Only 66 pieces will be made. The F.P. Journe Chronomètre Holland & Holland is priced at 45,000 CHF.
