  • Catalogue Essay

    Released as F.P. Journe’s very first sport watch in 2011-2012, the Octa 8 is an incredibly light timepiece that weighs around 53 grams. While the present watch is made with aluminum, the Sports Octa 8 is now only available in titanium due to the difficulty and softness of working in aluminum.

    The present watch, no. 2, is very rare and difficult to come by.

  • 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.
