Despite popular (and usually incorrect) belief, you can combine intense sport and luxury watches. F.P. Journe is proving its point by bringing watch-enthusiast athletes a new model in its lineSport collection: the Octa Sport in grade 5 titanium.
This lightweight and resistant piece in matt grey anthracite has a 42mm case and link bracelet. The dial and movement are both made of an aluminium alloy. The self-winding 1300.3 calibre inside the case provides a power reserve of approximately 120 hours (displayed at 10.30 on the dial) and brings to life the time (hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds at 6 o’ clock) and date functions (large date at 1 o’ clock) as well as the day/night indicator (display at 9 o’ clock). Luminescent hands and large Arabic numerals appear on the dial’s carbon surface. Price: 31,860 CHF (titanium bracelet) – 26,460 CHF (rubber strap)
