Technical description


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 between 2012 and 2014

After the launch of the innovative Centigraphe Sport in June 2011, first mechanical wristwatch ever in Aluminium, F.P. Journe now introduces the second model of the «lineSport», the Octa Sport in a high technology Aluminium alloy used in the aeronautics.

This exclusive new watch of an astounding lightness for absolute comfort weighs only 53 grams. Conceived specifically for a sporty lifestyle, it is coupled with an automatic movement of authentic high horology. The Octa Sport with its 120 hours power reserve features central hours and minutes, small seconds at 6:00, power reserve at 10:30, day/night indication at 8:00 and a large date at 1:00.

The passage from 18K rose Gold - used for all other F.P. Journe movements - to a high technology Aluminium alloy was not easy for obvious technical reasons. The brand perfected different methods of processing in order to make the Aluminium scratch resistant and give it anti-corrosive and anti-allergic properties while maintaining the standards of high horology so specific to the F.P. Journe Manufacture. F.P. Journe took his research one step further to complete an appropriate contrast in the colour of the Aluminium, never sacrificing the element of design.

The Octa Sport Aluminum movement, reserved exclusively to the lineSport, 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. This allows for the slightest movement of the wrist to automatically wind the watch. The rotor of the Octa Sport is also made of Aluminium alloy with the addition of a tungsten segment to increase the winding speed.
To efficiently protect the watch from any shocks, rubber inserts are fixed with an outstanding process to the sides of the case and the end of each link of the bracelet. The crown and the folding clasp, engraved with the F.P. Journe signature, are also covered with a rubber coating. The folding clasp offers an adjustment system of a half link size (4mm approx.).

The Octa Sport, like the Centigraphe Sport is also available with a black rubber strap.
