Centigraphe Souverain Anniversaire

Limited Series for the 10th Anniversary of the Paris F.P.Journe Boutique

Paris, November 29th, 2018 - The Anniversary Centigraphe celebrates the 10th Anniversary of each F.P.Journe Boutique. After Tokyo, Hong Kong and Geneva, the Paris F.P.Journe Boutique was the fourth to celebrate its anniversary with a Paris Limited Series of 10 pieces. Each piece is numbered followed by the name of the corresponding city.

This exclusive edition is made in a perfect harmony of colours: a 40mm polished Titanium case, a Ruthenium dial with sapphire registers, a 18K 6N Gold crown and rocker, the emblematic mechanical movement with manual winding in 18K rose Gold and the burgundy alligator strap.

The Anniversary Centigraphe is exclusively available in the Boutique celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Paris presented during the evening, a private collection of 5 subscription watches produced between 1999 and 2004 and each bearing the No 1: Tourbillon Souverain 1/20, Chronomètre à Résonance, Octa Automatique Réserve, Octa Calendrier and Octa Chronographe.

The Centigraphe is a spectacular mechanical chronograph that indicates elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials, each with a time scale in red.

On the left, the 100th of a second hand revolves around the dial in one second. The hand on the right revolves around the dial once every 20 seconds. The hand at 6 o’clock revolves around the dial in 10 minutes.

The chronograph is started, stopped and zeroed by a rocker located at 2 o’clock in the case band. This ergonomic design, perfectly fitted to the wristwatch, is patented.

A second patent was granted for the mechanism’s ingenious configuration, which effectively isolates the chronograph from the timekeeping function. This means the balance amplitude is unaffected when the chronograph is running.
