F.P. Journe Octa Automatique Réserve 40mm In Platinum

The Octa collection was built around a self-winding movement – Journe's first automatic caliber; his third overall in-house movement – that would support additional complications without changing the caliber dimensions. No matter what complication Journe has offered in the Octa line, the movement has always measured 30mm x 5.7mm or thinner. The Octa caliber 1300.3 used in this watch is also constructed from solid 18k rose gold, offers 160 hours of running autonomy using a single mainspring barrel, and a free-sprung balance with a flat balance spring.

Since its 2001 debut, the Octa has served as the heart of every self-winding F.P Journe watch, and the complication's it has been enhanced with include a power reserve, as seen in today's watch; UTC; moon-phase; and a perpetual calendar

Today's watch was produced from 2007 to 2018 and is offered inside a 40mm platinum case. The dial has a silver tone with a barleycorn finish; the complications are all spread out across the dial: power reserve at nine o'clock, running seconds (non hacking) at four o'clock, and a large double-digit date aperture between 11 and 12 o'clock.

The other characteristic aesthetic elements of the Octa line are all here as well. The sinuous hands, the polished domed bezel, the complex case geometry with flared lugs, the stylized Arabic numerals – it's all here.
This particular F.P. Journe Octa Automatique Réserve is in overall excellent pre-owned condition, meaning there are very light signs of wear and some small scratches on the case that come with being lived with. The case is crisp with strong lines and is unpolished in our view. The dial is very clean presenting in a stark white with gorgeous blued steel hands. The strap is in very good condition with some signs of previous wear. The caseback is marked with information about the watch and the serial number "2XX-AR." During our quality control check, any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the watch is functioning as intended.

The watch is delivered with its original F.P. Journe box, papers dated 4/9/2020, manuals, and cleaning cloth.

*NOTE: Please be aware that this watch comes with an alligator leather strap as an accessory. If the watch is shipped to any international destination, we will not be able to include the alligator strap due to laws regarding the sale and shipment of exotic leather goods. In this case, we will include a fashiontourbillon.com strap.
Founded in 1999 by François-Paul Journe, F.P. Journe has since its inception been renowned for its incredible artistry in watchmaking. Manufactured in insanely small production numbers at approximately 800 watches per year, F.P. Journe timepieces are also instantly recognizable for their signature aesthetic and the famed tagline printed on each dial: "Invenit et Fecit," or "invented and made." This combination of recognition and small production has garnered the brand and its watches a cult following within collector communities, essentially providing the timepieces an almost legendary aura about them – a sense which only grows when handled in person.
