Description

Behind the Octa collection’s idea was to give the highest possible degree of precision and autonomy on a wristwatch.
Three years of research and development were necessary to invent the rose gold Caliber 1300, an automatic movement with an astonishing 120 hour power reserve.
The round case is 40mm in diameter and 10.6mm high.  A transparent case back allows to admire the stunning movement finish.

*To mark the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of diplomatic relation between the French Republic and the People’s Republic of China, F.P. Journe introduced a new model called the “France-China 50 / Octa Automatique Lune”, 40mm case in platinum.
One can distinguish this model from the normal ones by its special blue toned dial and the small red France-China 50 logo visible at 3 o’clock, it also features an off-entered seconds sub-dial, a date and moon phase indicator, the automatic movement has an exceptional power reserve of over 120 hours.
It is said that the initial production was of about 10 pieces but until the model was stopped, only around 28 pieces were made in total.
