F.P.Journe – Nouvelle Octa Lune
This week is rich of watch novelties not simply from the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2015 yet in addition from several independent watchmakers.
F.P.Journe presented the Nouvelle Octa Lune offering a more visible reading of the time and a date twice as large.
The topsy turvy hours and minutes dial, entirely made in 18K gold, presently features embossed numbers surfaced with a precious stone instrument.
The second dial features a very large date with instantaneous change at 11 o’clock, the retrograde power reserve indicator on a scale of 120 efficient hours (5 days) at 9 o’clock and the phases of the moon at 8 o’clock.
The 3Hz (21,600 vph) mechanical movement with programmed winding (caliber 1300.3) is likewise manufactured in 18K rose gold as a custom for F.P. Journe. It is winded mono directionally by a guilloché 22K gold rotor.
The Nouvelle Octa Lune will be available with a case in 40 or 42 mm in platinum or in red gold, a red or white gold and silver dial, on leather lash or coordinating bracelet. fpjourne.com
