F.P.Journe Octa Sport Titanium

Prestigious luxury watch manufacture F.P.Journe enhances its linesport collection by introducing the Octa Sport with a case in Titanium grade 5, high tech and ultra light material of dark grey colour with matte finishing. In a quest for performance and lightness, the movement and dial are made of aluminium alloy and this watch weighs from 60 to 70 grams depending of the model.

The Octa Sport Titanium offers 120 hours power reserve (5 days) and a rotor in Titanium with Tungsten segment using each movement of the wrist. Rubber inserts fixed with an outstanding process to the sides of the case and the links of the bracelet reinforce its contemporary design.

The new Octa Sport Titanium is also proposed with a rubber strap and both versions are available from all F.P.Journe Boutiques and points of sale.

The lineSport is conceived specifically for a sportive lifestyle, coupled with an automatic movement of authentic high horology. The Octa Sport in Titanium retain the properties of the Octa calibers: five days power reserve, central hour and minutes, small second at 6h, power reserve at 10h30, day/night indication at 9h, and a large date at 1h.
