  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2011 François-Paul Journe launched his first sports line, which like all his other creations was like no other. He didn’t create yet another steel watch that looked like so many others but launched a variation of his ground breaking Centigraphe chronograph entirely made in aluminum including not only the case bit also bracelet and even movement.

    The Centigraphe Sport participated on May 27, 2011 in its first official automobile race on Jean Alesi’s wrist in the Indy 500.

    The Centigraphe Sport features Journe’s innovative, in-house manually wound chronograph movement capable of measuring down to one hundredth of a second. When the chronograph function is engaged, the 100th of a second hand at 10 o’clock, completes one revolution per second. Once the chronograph is stopped, this hand can be stopped anywhere, allowing even a fractional 100th of a second reading. Along with the high-grade caliber 1506, the case uses a rocker stop/reset button, which allows two fingers to stay in the same place to keep time, allowing for more precise use of the chronograph.

    The 100th second indicator, 20 seconds counter, and 10 minutes counter are all read on three red subsidiary registers. Each subsidiary dial is marked “S” or “M” and “PR” for Seconds or Minutes Per Revolution.

    Made from 2011 to 2104 the Centigraphe Sport in aluminum was discontinued and replaced by a titanium version

  • 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.
