THE F.P.JOURNE CALIBRE OCTA CELEBRATES ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY
We are pleased to share with you this short movie of the exhibition highlights, dedicated to all admirers of haute horology who could not travel to Geneva for the event.
Discover a display of rare pieces and limited series, from the very first Octa timepiece from 2001 to the new Automatique.
The presentation of the Octa automatic movement in 2001 has marked a turning point and proved that the watchmaking revolution of the 21st century was underway. Efficient in all respects, it has undergone only three evolutions during its 20 years of operation. The most recent one concerns the winding automation system. It has moved from bi-directional to unidirectional winding, which is more efficient to guarantee the rapid tensioning of the long spring of the barrel.
For François-Paul Journe, since the launch and minimal modifications, the Octa has proven its precision and endurance and as he states: “The Octa is an accomplished movement that requires no further modification due to its almost unreal performance”.
