  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2011, the master of 21st century horology, Francois-Paul Journe unveils the “Line Sport” collection dedicated to rigorous precision of sports activity. The Centigraphe Sport engineered with patented innovations and an astounding lightness is the first wristwatch to be made entirely in aluminium. First sported in a 42mm diameter case was the in-house manual wound movement cal. 1506 that provides an intricate reading of 100th of a second, 20 seconds and 10 minutes with the most utmost accuracy. Each subsidiary dial displays the time scale in red with abbreviations of ‘S’, ‘M’ or ‘PR’ indicating seconds or minutes per revolution.

    One ingenious feature of the movement is the ability to effectively isolate the chronograph from the time keeping function, meaning the balance amplitude would remain unaffected when the chronograph is running in full speed. The 100th of a second counter may be stopped on demand along its one-second journey around the dial with yet another clever innovation of an usual rocker pusher. Acting as a brake of this workhorse, the rocker allows quick manoeuvre between the start and stop function. It’s technicality brilliance was also known to be proudly conceived on the wrist of French Formula One racer, Jean Alesi, during his first INDY500 motorsports event.

    In 2014, Journe replaced the aluminum model with a titanium version, and then in 2019 he released the 18K pink gold version like the present watch. Armoured in a fresh matte hammered pink gold appeal down to the hefty bracelet, the Centigraphe is elevated to a whole new level for this innovative sports watch. A perfect design of silver guilloche dial covered with ruthenium, the appliques numerals and hour and minute hands features the same gold, making the overall dial seamlessly beautiful.

    The watch is Journe’s answer to creating a motorsport timekeeper that provides best-in-class, mechanical timing. The present example is in “like-new” condition and is offered with its original guarantee and presentation box. The pink gold Line Sport Centigraphe Souverain is a milestone wristwatch in the history of F. P. Journe, and the present lot offers a very rare opportunity to own one of these masterpieces.

  • 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.
