Francois-Paul Journe began his career as a clock restorer in France. Ultimately, the talented watchmaker created his own manufacturer 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 present watch, the Octa Quantième Perpétuel was included within F.P. Journe’s collection in 2012 and replaced the long lasting Octa Calandrier model. The minimalistic design of the watch displays optimum legibility through the innovative and uncluttering perpetual display, through its stylistic contrasting lines, the watch displays fine elegance unique to F.P Journe.


Besides it’s fashionable appearance, the technical advancement of the long-existing perpetual calendar complication is beyond imagination. Featuring the FPJ 1300-3 calibre, the watch offers an instantaneous perpetual calendar, with all calendar displays jumping simultaneously in a flash at midnight, an uncommon feature even with the biggest names in the game. Furthermore, the user friendliness of the perpetual calendar mechanism was carefully designed to allow anyone to adjust the date in ease.


Encased in platinum, the present watch has been kept in attractive condition and is offered with its original warranty card and presentation case.
