Known for avant-garde innovations in haute horology, F. P. Journe once again did not let collectors disappoint with his Centigraphe Souverain release in 2008. A jaw-dropping magnificent masterpiece that would go on to win L'Aiguille d'Or (the grand prize for the best watch) in the same year. Not only was this collection an incredible achievement, but it also became a symbol of celebration for the 10th anniversary of F.P. Journe's boutiques worldwide. The present watch, in particular, is one of only 20 pieces produced for the Hong Kong boutique.
What sets the Centigraphe Souverain apart is its unique layout of skeletonised chronograph registers, which allows it to measure elapsed times from 100th of a second to 10 minutes. It is the first hand-wound wristwatch to achieve this feat where it has achieved perfection by isolating the timekeeping segment in the same movement. Unlike conventional watches, the chronograph function is triggered by an ingeniously designed patented ergonomic system with a rocker arm, which minimizes energy loss and inaccuracies upon activation.
This special edition of the Centigraphe Souverain is encased in titanium with a hint of pink gold in the pusher and the crown, making for an unusual and remarkable combination. The harmonious ruthenium and pink dial further adds to the watch's presence, making it stand out among other chronographs. With finesse and strong demand for F.P. Journe watches, the Centigraphe Anniversaire will remain the pinnacle of chronographs for generations to come.
