F.P. Journe has unveiled not one but two new watches featuring a bold new shade of yellow. The luxury Swiss watch manufacturer has added the two timepieces to its Linesport collection. F.P. Journe’s Centigraphe Sport and Octa Sport showcase a jacket style black-and-yellow color scheme with red accents which makes them a refreshing addition to the otherwise mature-toned Linesport collection.
The latest additions to the F.P. Journe family are both enclosed in a 44-millimeter lightweight, aircraft-grade titanium cases in an anthracite color that weighs 75 grams a piece. The bold new models also share a bezel constructed from titanium and ceramic and marked with detailed indices. The bright dials make the two watches stand apart from the rest of the collection and to make them even more radiant, all the numbers, indices, and hands are made to be luminescent.
The Centigraphe Sport is powered by F.P. Journe’s Calibre 1506, a chronograph movement that’s known for its ability to record times with an accuracy of up to a 100th of a second. You can now record fractions of 100th of a second because the hand on the one-second sundial at 10 o’clock stops anywhere along its path. The rest of the chronograph information is displayed on a 20 seconds display at 2 o’clock and a 10-minute indicator at 6 o’clock. The manually wound timepiece from F.P. Journe has a maximum power reserve of 80 hours when the chronograph isn’t used and up to 24 hours with the chronograph running. And if you buy this piece of mechanical artwork, you will also be helping the Brain & Spine Institute in Paris as 30% of each of them from the Centigraphe Sports’ approximate $68,500 price tag will be donated to them
