Boutique F.P. Journe Tokyo Unveils Octa Perpetuelle Timepiece

Jun 23, 2009
The Octa Perpetuelle is a new Anniversary watch, demonstrating an exclusive perpetual calendar. The prestigious limited edition of 99 items has been launched to mark the F.P. Journe Boutiques’ worldwide network with the 5th Anniversary of the first Boutique in Tokyo.

The first speech at the event was delivered by His Excellency, the Swiss Ambassador in Japan, Mr. Paul Fivat. It was followed by Francois-Paul Journe’s World Premiere presentation of the innovative model Octa Perpetuelle, which took place in front of a flowered clock’s fine-scale replica of the Geneva’s English Garden.

In 2001, F.P.Journe unveiled the OCTA line, including mechanical timekeeping companions with a self-winding movement, distinguished by an extraordinary power reserve of 5 days or 120 hours. All the models’ cases demonstrated the same thickness despite the complications available.

The 8th OCTA product, the Octa Perpetuelle, enlarges the collection of the automatic winding calibre signed F.P. Journe - Invenit et Fecit.

Lots of collectors welcomed at the event looked forward to this product, offering a perpetual calendar. According to the guests, this line proved to be an eloquent confirmation of Swiss watchmaker’s creative genius and novel technical skills.

Then, the guests were treated to specialties of Marseilles, Francois-Paul Journe’s birthplace, around a Provencal buffet served together with sea savours cooked by a true French chef.

The evening continued in a warm atmosphere with collectors showing their avid interest in F.P.Journe watches.
