Furthering HSNY's educational mission, Swiss watch manufacture F.P. Journe has made a major contribution to facilitate an expansion and relocation of HSNY's extensive horological library. Beginning in May 2016, HSNY's library will move into the NYC landmark General Society Library, where HSNY holds its 150-year-old monthly lecture series.
F.P. Journe also donated and signed two books published by the brand, Steel Time by Jean-Claude Sabrier and Georges Rigot, and Grand Sonnerie, by Jean-Claude Sabrier and Vincent Daveau. Both books are available now in HSNY's library for all members.
Nicholas Manousos, HSNY Vice President said "HSNY's library is a horological treasure, and F.P. Journe's sponsorship is an incredible gesture that will help keep the library available and accessible for generations to come."
Pierre Halimi Lacharlotte, Montres Journe America General Manager said "To all lovers of watchmaking, to all would be watchmakers: 'Study the past if you would define the future.' (Confucius)"
