Octa 1300.3.
The gray gold or 5N red gold dial features a large instant snap date that offers optimum readability thanks to an aperture of 4.7 x 2.6 mm. On the right, the hours, minutes and seconds are indicated within an off-center silver guilloché sub-dial. The knurled crown, enlarged in order to perfect the balance of the case, allows the adjustment of the Automatique. These elements, together with the blue-toned hands in the shape of an elongated drop and the dial of the counter, in polished steel screwed onto the dial, are all characteristics that make FP Journe watches unique.
The refined aesthetic of an FP Journe timepiece always reflects the highest level of mechanical innovation. The automatic caliber Octa 1300.3, crafted in 18-karat pink gold, offers chronometric accuracy of 120 hours and an exceptional 160-hour power reserve. The decentralized rotor in 5N 22 carat red gold counts on a unidirectional system of self-locking ball bearings, so that every movement of the wrist is exploited in order to guarantee optimal performance.
