F.P.Journe just dispatched another design for the sportier models of the brand, the Centigraphe Sport and the Octa Sport.
Outlined by 44 mm diameter cases in titanium grade 5 of anthracite tone, the dials of the new models sport another bright yellow tone with luminescent appliqué numbers and dark line just as sapphire counters with eye-catching red numbers.
The bezel in titanium and ceramic follows the codes of the Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante with numbers engraved in the titanium base.
Titanium is habitually utilized in boating and the aeronautics for its lightness and it high resistance to corrosion and wear. The matte finishing utilized for these models emphasizes their sporty character. To make the watches much lighter, developments are produced using an aluminum amalgam, keeping each watch under an all out weight of only 75 grams.
The 3 HZ hand-wound mechanical development of the Centigraphe indicates slipped by times from a 100th of one moment to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials.
The chronograph is begun, halted and focused by a rocker at 2 o’clock for the situation band, instead of the standard fastens on either side of the crown. This ergonomic design, entirely fitted to the wristwatch, is licensed.
A subsequent patent was allowed for the mechanism’s ingenious configuration, which effectively isolates the chronograph from the timekeeping function. This implies the equilibrium amplitude is unaffected when the chronograph is running. The hands of the 100th of a subsequent counter, the 20 seconds, and the 10 minutes hand are driven by 2 different wheel trains, themselves driven by the focal point of the mainspring. Another different train of wheels, likewise driven by the barrel arbor, drives the 10-minutes hand.
The barrel includes a maintaining power framework in request to guarantee that the driving power doesn’t diminish during winding. The mainspring supplies in any event 80 hours of force save without the chronograph, and 24 hours with the chronograph running.
The Octa Sport includes a day and night indication and a date now considerably bigger (4.7 x 2.6 mm) for optimal readability.
Its automatic mechanical development Caliber 1300-3 highlights a titanium rotor with a tungsten fragment to exploit any slightest development of the wrist to increase the winding of the watch and provide as long as 160 hours of force save. The development beats at a recurrence of 3 Hz (21,600 vph).
The price of the F.P.Journe Centigraphe Sport 2018 is Euro 60,000 while the Octa Sport 2018 is Euro 38,600. The new models are additionally available with a case and wristband in platinum or in red gold with pounded finishing. fpjourne.com
