The present Octa Perpétuelle was the only of the series to be brand new and specifically made for the fifth Tokyo anniversary. Based on the Octa Calendrier, the watch was refreshed from an annual calendar to a perpetual calendar while still using the distinctive large retrograde date along with apertures for day and month. Interestingly, the leap year indication is well hidden within the month of February. In addition to the upgraded calendar, the watch also received a pusher at 8 o’clock to quickly cycle the month aperture.


Limited to only 99 pieces, this watch is made special not only due to the exclusivity and sought-after dial colour, but also because it is the first ever F.P. Journe perpetual calendar. This watch is perfect for any collector looking to add a rare yet very wearable complicated piece by the now famed independent.
