Centigraphe Sport and Octa Sport 2018

F.P.Journe introduces a new design for the Centigraphe Sport and the Octa Sport. The two models are available with a 44 mm diameter case in Titanium grade 5 of anthracite color with an assorted bracelet. The bezel in Titanium and ceramic follows the codes of the Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante with numbers engraved in the Titanium base. For the first time, a new bright yellow dial brings a new intensity to the lineSport with luminescent applique numbers surrounded with black as well as sapphire counters with red numbers.

The Titanium is frequently used in boating and the aeronautics for its lightness and it high resistance to corrosion and wear. Its matte finishing is emphasizing its contemporary sportive aspect. In a constant quest for performance and lightness, the movement is made from Aluminium alloy, each watch weighing 75 grams.

The hand-wound mechanical movement of the Centigraphe indicates elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials.

The Octa Sport features a day and night indication and a date now even larger (4.7 x 2.6 mm) for optimal readability. The automatic winding mechanical movement with a Titanium rotor and a Tungsten segment uses any slightest movement of the wrist to increase the winding of the watch providing 160 hours of power reserve.

The Centigraphe Sport and the Octa Sport are also available with a case and bracelet in Platinum or 18K red Gold with hammered finishing.
