  • Catalogue Essay

    The Octa Automatique was the very first watch in the Octa series of watches introduced in 2001. The movement is crafted from solid gold and the dial has an eccentric time display, retrograde power reserve for 120 hours and date. Offered in extremely well preserved condition, the watch gives a very sophisticated and modern look to the wearer.

  • 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.
