Francois-Paul Journe began his career as a clock restorer in France. Ultimately, the talented watchmaker created his own manufacture in 1999. His innovative approach to watchmaking and great sense of design inevitably made Francois-Paul Journe one of the most acclaimed independent watchmakers and the only one to win the celebrated Aiguille d’Or prize three times.

The Octa Sport in titanium followed in 2014 after the aluminium version was discontinued by F.P. Journe. Indicating the date, day/night and power reserve, the utilitarian watch is housed in a very attractive titanium case that pairs well with the grey dial. While slightly heavier than its aluminium predecessor, it is still an astoundingly light watch thanks to its aluminium movement and titanium case.

Discontinued in 2018, this particular model has been growing in popularity among collectors. The present watch has been enjoyed by its previous owner but is offered in attractive condition with warranty card and presentation case.
