Technical description

Octa mechanical self-winding calibre, providing an exceptional 120-hour power-reserve.

Like the sky chart zone - divided into twelve parts and marked out by two tiny circles parallel to the ecliptic and located at an angle of 8.5° and in which the apparent movement of the sun is depicted - the outer circle with the 12 hour graduations moves each day, driven by the large date system and thereby displaying the month and the sign of the zodiac at 12 o'clock.

About

This watch was been produced between 2003 and 2005
Limited Series numbered 1 to 150
Case 40mm in platinum with movement in brass

Through this creation, François-Paul Journe wished to make a graphic allusion to the stars, which have always served as points of reference for mankind in calculating time, and have also influenced human beliefs…

This watch is developed on the basis of the Octa mechanical self-winding calibre, providing an exceptional 120-hour power-reserve.
Like the sky chart zone - divided into twelve parts and marked out by two tiny circles parallel to the ecliptic and located at an angle of 8.5° and in which the apparent movement of the sun is depicted - the outer circle with the 12 hour graduations moves each day, driven by the large date system and thereby displaying the month and the sign of the zodiac at 12 o'clock.

The back of the 40 mm platinum case reveals the exclusive F.P. Journe mechanism, thus making it a limited edition within the collection. After the Octa Divine, this is the second model to feature central blued hour and minute hands. It also features a power-reserve indicator, large date display and sub-seconds at 5 o'clock.

Issued in a limited series of 150, the silver and slate grey 18-carat gold dial, confirms its resemblance to other models within the Octa collection.
