The Vagabondage was named for the wandering original digital time display and special flat bezel tortue shape unique to the model from Journe. The original Vagabondage, housed in a 36 mm case was launched as a unique edition for charity and later in a limited series due to the overwhelming demand by collectors. The long awaited and highly anticipated Vagabondage 2 was released in an edition of either platinum or rose gold with only 69 example of each manufactured. Retaining similar design aspect of the original the updated version was increased in size to 37.5 mm and featured an 18k pink gold movement visible through the smoked glass dial, in keeping with the Vagabondage tradition the dial is not signed and no publicity was launched for the model with demand lead by word of mouth from collectors.
