  • Catalogue Essay

    First developed in 2001, the Octa movement was F.P. Journe’s first self-winding movement with a power reserve of up to 120 hours. In 2002, the firm released their first Octa Réserve de Marche model, which became the firm’s very first self-winding wristwatch. The earliest examples of the model featured a 38mm diameter case and a movement composed of brass. After 2004, Journe disregarded the brass movements and started to fully integrate into creating 18K gold movements with a 22k gold rotor specific to the Octa series. For transitioning examples produced after 2004, the model was powered by the cal. 1300.2 indicating the second generation of the caliber, it is believed that only very few examples were produced.

    The present example F.P. Journe Octa Réserve de Marche in pink gold with a silver dial from circa 2020 is of the latest example bearing the cal. 1300.3, signifying the present timepiece from the third generation similarly with an 18K gold movement and a 22K gold rotor with a case measuring 40mm diameter. Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its original guarantee and presentation box, this handsome specimen is a great addition to any collection of fine timepieces.

  • 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.
