In 2001, Journe presented a collection of automatic watches, based on a single movement (with additional complications), with a single size for all the complications and with a long power reserve, improved chronometric performances and great stability over the long power reserve. The key word was uniformity, as the Octa had to be a uniform collection whatever the complications or display used – the Octa has seen several versions, including annual or perpetual calendar, chronograph, moon-phase or UTC. Still, the base movement, the dimensions and the style were shared. The movement was a 5-day power reserve calibre, with variable inertia balance and capacity to accept most types of modules.
