Technical description

(1) 22K Gold rotor with uni-directional winding
(2) Large capacity mainspring barrel
(3) Precision-adjustment weights
(4) Full-size free-sprung chronometer balance

Watches with long power reserves have hitherto been handicapped by small balances which are susceptible to shocks and disturbances. The Octa's compact construction allows a large (10.1 mm) balance to be fitted, giving greater inertia and stability. The free-sprung chronometer balance is adjusted by five turning weights that vibrate at a steady 21'600 times an hour.

Fully wound, the Octa delivers chronometric precision for 120 hours. The meter-long mainspring supplies an average 850gr of torque, limiting the loss in balance amplitude to 25% over the five-day period. Beyond that time, the watch will continue to go for another day or two, but the amplitude-loss no longer guarantees precision timekeeping.

About

This model was produced in 2012
Edited in 29 pieces

In commemoration of Jean Alesi’s participation to the emblematic Indianapolis 500 miles race, F.P. Journe created a Limited Series of 99 pieces, the «Octa Sport Indy 500», numbered 501 to 599. Inspired by the Octa Sport, it is produced in high technology Aluminium alloy used in the aeronautics. The blackened Aluminium case and black dial, with the F.P. Journe -Invenit et Fecit- signature, featuring the logos Indy 500, Lotus and Jean Alesi, reinforces its sportive aspect and places this Limited Series in the category of watches associated with car races.

A watch of an astounding lightness for absolute comfort as it only weighs 53 grams altogether. It is thought and conceived specifically for a sporty lifestyle, and coupled with an automatic movement of authentic high horology. The «Octa Sport Indy 500» offers a 120-hour power and features central hours and minutes, small seconds at 5:00, power reserve at 10:30, day/night indication at 8:00 and a large date at 1:00.

F.P. Journe undertook long researches to find an ultra-light and resistant material to receive this exceptional calibre; while maintaining the standards of high horology so specific to the F.P. Journe Manufacture. The «Octa Sport Indy 500» features the new all Aluminium alloy F.P. Journe movement reserved exclusively to the models of the lineSport. The brand also perfected different methods of processing in order to make the aluminium scratch resistant and give it anti-corrosive and anti-allergic properties.

The «Octa Sport Indy 500» Aluminum alloy movement still preserves the properties of all F.P. Journe Octa calibers, with a five-day power reserve and a variable inertia balance wheel for an optimum yield and an irreproachable stability.

Rubber inserts are fixed with an outstanding process to the sides of the case to efficiently protect the watch from any shocks, in line with bumpers of ancient automobiles. The crown and the folding clasp, engraved with the F.P. Journe signature, are also covered with a rubber coating.
