  • Catalogue Essay

    The F.P. Journe Octa Chronograph perfectly illustrates the brand's philosophy: to make the most cutting edge wristwatches available on the market today.

    Their motto, "Invenit et Fecit", or "he invented it and made it" is exemplified by the watch's eccentric time display, registers and large date. The watch is further distinguished by its slim automatic gold movement, a trademark of the firm's, which also houses the patented twin concentric large display discs.

  • 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.
