F.P.Journe Nouvelle Octa Lune

Prestigious luxury watch manufacture F.P.Journe presents the Nouvelle Octa Lune, a new interpretation of emblematic Octa collection with a more visible reading of the time and a date twice as large.

The 2 dials of the Nouvelle Octa Lune are in 18K Gold. The first dial, off center, with embossed hour numbers surfaced with a diamond tool has been enlarged for a better reading of the time.The second dial features a very large date in aperture at 11h, the retrograde power reserve indicator on a scale of 120 efficient hours (5 days) at 9h and the phases of the moon at 8h.
The mechanical movement with automatic winding (caliber 1300.3) is manufactured in 18K rose Gold. It is winded mono directionally by the F.P.Journe 22K Gold rotor for an unequalled efficiency. The New Octa Lune is available with a case in 40 or 42 mm (not any more in 38mm)in Platinum or in 18K red Gold, a red or white Gold and silver dial, on leather strap, Platinum or red Gold bracelet.
