Description

The Octa Calendrier was made between 2003 and 2005, and was the first wrist watch integrating an annual calendar with large date, boasting a power reserve of 120+ hours. The work on the base Calibre 1300 started in the year 2000, and it was designed in a way that additional complications could be integrated into it without increasing the thickness of the calibre. Hence there is a noticeable space on the outside of the rotor. The annual calendar is the third complication to be added to this base movement.

 

The present reference is the Octa Calendrier with a Ruthenium-on-Gold dial in a 40mm platinum case. This extremely rare and limited to 99, this timepiece has a certain stealth feel to it, front and back. The movement crafted is brass, with ruthenium finish, which can be admired through the sapphire caseback. The greyish treatment of the Caliber 1300.3 is unlike the usual gold movements that F.P. Journe is known for, or even the super-exclusive brass movements.

This unusually gorgeous timepiece is offered on a black alligator strap, with a platinum tang buckle, it is accompanied by F.P. Journe limited edition warranty certificate and FPJ presentation box.
