F.P. Journe Octa Anniversary

Introduced in 2001, F.P. Journe's Octa automatic movement is turning 20 this year and to celebrate the company has released a special edition Automatique. Encased in platinum, the 40mm watch features a satin-finished dial in yellow gold, which echoes the handmade dials created by François-Paul himself in 2001. The Automatique dial receives a number of tweaks that include an adjusted placement for the power reserve indicator that has been placed lower to make room for the larger date window and the hour and minute dial have also increased in size. F.P. Journe's 1330.3 movement powers it all with a brass rotor in 22k 5N gold and it has a power reserve of 160 hours.
