  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch Octa Calendrier encased in platinum features an asymmetrically contemporary dial layout with a hint of traditional elements of horology such as the iconic blued steel hands and the “guilloche” texture on the main dial. With a clean and functional design, the dial further features a retrograde style date indication riming over half of the circumference of the watch with a date and month window above and below the signature. When one flips the watch to its movement side, an elevated emotion of excitement is usually witnessed. Featuring an off-centered 22K gold rotor, the concept enhances its self-winding efficiency.

    The present Octa Calendrier fitted with a silvered dial is presented in excellent “like new” overall condition and is further accompanies by the full set of accessories that came with the watch when it was purchased by the original owner.

  • 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.
