  • Catalogue Essay

    F.P. Journe introduced his “Sports" line of models in 2011. Made originally in ultra-light aluminum cases, he rapidly switched to titanium.

    According to Journe, the collection was inspired by an important collector of the brand, himself a dedicated sportsman, looking for an ultra-light sports watch with a haute horlogerie movement.

    The present Linesport Automatique Reserve is available in 3 metals: titanium like the present example, red gold and platinum.

    Decidedly sporty in look with its lightweight titanium case and bracelet and ceramic bezel, the watch is driven by Journe’s caliber 1300.3 with ultra large date made in aluminium alloy that jumps precisely at midnight.

    The watch also features a day/night indicator as well as a 160 hour power reserve indicator. Journe has developed an automatic winding system which optimizes winding with the slightest movement of the arm.

    The movement of the present example in titanium is made of titanium elements, along with an offset rotor in titanium with tungsten segment.

    A potent mix of contemporary cool with horological prowess the present Octa Sportline bears all the genetic codes of watches by Journe.

  • Artist Biography

    F.P. Journe

    Swiss • 1999

    Founded by watchmaker François-Paul Journe in 1999, the F.P. Journe brand is relatively young, but already is as highly regarded by collectors as many distinguished manufacturers with centuries-old heritage. In the minds of the world's savviest collectors, Journe is producing some of the finest wristwatches the market has ever seen. Mastering his craft from restoring historical timepieces, he was the first to create a wristwatch incorporating two escapements that benefit from the phenomenon of resonance — the Chronomètre à Résonance.

    Key models include the Résonance, tourbillon wristwatches incorporating a remontoir and the limited edition Vagabondage series. Especially sought-after are his earliest "souscription" watches, made in 1999.
