F.P. Journe presents the new Octa Lune

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

F.P. Journe releases a new version of the Octa Lune with a bigger date window which is twice the size of the old one & improved visibility in reading of the time.

The first dial, off centre, with embossed hour numbers surfaced with a diamond tool has been enlarged for a better reading of the time.


The new FP Journe Octa Lune in Platinum

The second dial features a very large date in aperture at 11h, the retrograde power reserve indicator on a scale of 120 efficient hours (5 days) at 9h and the phases of the moon at 8h.

The mechanical movement with automatic winding (calibre 1300.3) is manufactured in 18 K rose Gold.  It is winded mono directionally by the F.P. Journe 22 K Gold rotor for an unequalled efficiency.


The new rose gold version

The New Octa Lune is available with a case in 40 or 42 mm. in Platinum or in 18 K red Gold, a red or white Gold and silver dial, on leather strap, Platinum or red Gold bracelet.
