GROSZ Jean-Pierre



The fascinating book that tells the legendary story of François-Paul Journe has finally been released. Over 384 pages and 354 illustrations relates his childhood as an enfant terrible in Marseille; his wild adolescent friendships, his joys and indiscretions, his hopes and doubts for his future; and, finally, the revelation of the world of watchmaking - a universe that was to become his vocation and would open up wonderful new horizons. The author narrates François-Paul's research on precision; his love of creating, constructing, and innovating; his successes and victories; but also his doubts, frustations and rebellions; the events that made him what he is today, why he practices his particular style of watchmaking, which collectors so admire. He writes about his constant search for perfection, from the niche he has constructed for himself, little by little, and with great dedication, to the brilliant watchmaker-constructor he has become. About his talent recognized by his peers and his rewards by countless international prizes and his deep need for independance. The book will give you many delightful hours as you learn all about the unique destiny of François-Paul Journe.
