Renowned luxury watch manufacture F.P.Journe unveils the Anniversary Centigraphe watch celebrating the 10th Anniversary of each F.P.Journe Boutique. The Hong Kong Boutique celebrates its 10th Anniversary this October 6, 2016. It is the first to unveil its Anniversary edition with a limited Series of 20 pieces, followed by the Tokyo Boutique on October 7. Tokyo will introduce its anniversary watch limited to 10 pieces, with a retrospective exhibition of the F.P.Journe Anniversary Series (Chronomètre Souverain 2005 - Chronomètre à Résonance 2006 - Tourbillon Souverain 2007 – Octa Perpétuelle 2010).
This exclusive edition is made in a perfect harmony of colours: a 40mm polished Titanium case, a Ruthenium dial with sapphire registers, an 18K Gold crown and rocker, the emblematic mechanical movement with manual winding in 18K rose Gold and the burgundy alligator strap.
The Centigraphe is a spectacular mechanical chronograph indicating elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials, each with a time scale in red. On the left, the 100th of a second hand revolves around the dial in one second on a scale marked in hundredths of a second. The hand on the right revolves once every 20 seconds on a time scale divided into seconds. The hand at 6 o’clock makes a tour in 10 minutes.
The Centigraphe Souverain contributes to the medical research of the ICM. In purchasing the Centigraphe, you are also supporting the medical research carried out by the ICM – Institute of Brain and Spinal Cord in Paris - to help find a cure for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis…
The Centigraphe Souverain was awarded the « l’Aiguille d’Or » (the Golden Hand ) at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie of Geneva in 2008. It was also elected Watch of the Year on timezone.com in 2009.
The F.P.Journe Boutiques Anniversary Editions
In 2005, this first Anniversary Edition of 20 pieces celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of the Boutique in Tokyo was an exclusive version of the Chronomètre Souverain, crafted for the first time with a Titanium case, a dial in Ruthenium and the 18K rose Gold movement. For the 3rd anniversary of the Tokyo Boutique in 2006, F.P.Journe created a special edition of the Chronomètre à Résonance in a limited edition of 12 pieces with a Titanium case, Ruthenium dial, burgundy strap and 18K rose Gold movement.
For the 1st Anniversary of the Boutique in Hong Kong in 2007, F.P.Journe created a special edition of the Tourbillon Souverain with remontoir d’égalité and deadbeat seconds. This limited edition of 20 pieces, 5 for each Boutique in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Geneva and Boca Raton, featured the now classical Anniversary Titanium case, a Ruthenium dial and the 18K rose Gold movement.
In 2009, to celebrate the F.P.Journe Boutique network around the world with the 5th Anniversary of the first F.P.Journe Boutique in Tokyo, F.P.Journe created the Octa Perpétuelle, limited to 99 pieces, with a Titanium case, a Ruthenium dial and the 18K rose Gold movement. It was divided between the seven F.P.Journe Boutiques in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Geneva, Hong Kong, Beijing and Boca Raton.
