F.P. Journe Octa Divine 42mm

After the Chronomètre Optimum, the Quantième Perpétuel and the Octa Lune, it is the turn of the Octa Divine to move onto size 42 mm.

Completely redesigned in 42mm, F.P. Journe’s Octa Divine model now features a new look: elegant, uncluttered, and perfectly legible. The instantaneous large date is displayed in enlarged windows that stand out against the Gold dial where the seconds disk display and the power reserve indicator are subtly delineated.
The elegant sapphire moon phase disk, the delicate blued steel hands, and the streamlined polished steel circle screwed to the dial are all exclusive characteristics of F.P. Journe.
A spark of whimsy is added by the different sized numerals of the hours ring, while red dots enliven the resolutely contemporary aesthetics of the dial.
The movement of the Octa Divine (calibre 1300.3), manufactured in 18K rose Gold, is automatically wound and has a power reserve of over 5 days. The unidirectional winding of the exclusive off-centre F.P. Journe rotor in 22K red Gold is achieved by a self-locking ball bearing system. Thus each movement, no matter how slight, is utilised for the optimal winding of the watch.
The Octa Divine, available in the F.P. Journe Boutiques, also exists with a 40 mm case, in Platinum or in 18K red Gold.
