The Octa Lune Havana F.P. Journe awarded « Best of the Best 2017 » by Robb Report Russia

Moscow, June 2017

F.P. Journe is once again rewarded for its exceptional watch creations. The Octa Lune Havana is granted «Best of the Best 2017» by Robb Report Russia in the category Watch Best Dial.
This Best of the Best Prize awards the 2017 finest timepieces for their artistic expression and mechanical mastery.

The dial colour is unique to F.P. Journe, a result of the company’s well-tended independence, which ensures its creative freedom.

It was developed by Journe’s own dial-makers, Les Cadraniers de Genève, in a process lasting several months. In essence, it is a combination of gold and ruthenium. But to get the colour just right required many adjustments to the formula.

This Octa Lune Havana is a newest addition to the F.P. Journe collection of Haute Horology watches which features five days of power reserve (120H) with a variable inertia balance wheel for an optimum stability and a mono-directional 22K red Gold rotor that uses any slightest movement of the wrist for an optimized winding.

The central hours as well as the large date are easily to read. A specific wheel train allows precise moon phase indications.

The special issue, Best of the Best, has been recognized as the epitome of Robb Report, the symbolic Hall of fame for luxury.
