F.P.Journe Linesport – New Centigraphe and Automatique Reserve Models in Platinum or 18k 6N gold

After the launch of the Centigraphe Titanium and Automatique Réserve Titanium with yellow dials last fall, the Centigraphe and the Automatique Réserve watches from F.P.Journe are now available in Platinum and 18K 6N Gold versions.

The 44mm cases are available in Platinum or 18K 6N Gold with an assorted respective metal bracelet with matte finishing emphasizing a contemporary sportive aspect.

The bezel with ceramic inlay follows the codes of the Chronographe Rattrapante with numbers engraved in the Platinum or Gold base.

The dials of the 18K 6N Gold versions are in Silver guilloche covered with Ruthenium and appliques numerals in matte 18K 6N Gold and Silver guilloche chronograph or small second counters.

The Platinum versions feature blue-mauve colour Silver guilloche dials with appliques numerals in matte white Gold and Silver guilloche chronograph or small second counters.

The 18K rose Gold hand-wound mechanical movement of the Centigraphe indicates elapsed times on three dials, a 100th of a second at 10 o’clock, 20 seconds at 2 o’clock and 10 minutes at 6 o’clock. The chronograph is started, stopped and zeroed by a patented ® rocker at 2 o’clock instead of the usual buttons on either side of the crown.

The Centigraphe supports the medical research carried out by the ICM, Institute of Brain and Spinal Cord in Paris. Along with Professor Gérard Saillant, Luc Besson, Jean Réno, Michelle Yeoh and Jean Todt, amongst others, François-Paul Journe has committed to donating 30% of the profits from the sale of each Centigraphe to the ICM, with no time limit.

The Automatique Réserve features a day and night indication and a date now even larger (4.7 x 2.6 mm) for optimal readability. The 18K rose Gold automatic winding mechanical movement with a 22K Gold rotor uses any slightest movement of the wrist to increase the winding of the watch providing 160 hours of power reserve.

The Centigraphe Souverain and the Octa Automatique Réserve are now part of the retrospective collections that are no longer in production.

The Centigraphe and the Automatique Réserve in Platinum or 18K 6N Gold are now available in the 9 F.P.Journe Boutiques around the world.
