Optimized winding system Always taking into account the notes and observations concerning his products, François Paul Journe states, “I realized that one of my friend’s Octa was never completely wound because he works on a computer and his hand doesn’t move enough.” It is from this observation that he will create the new Octa caliber (1300-3) that uses the slightest movement to automatically wind the watch. With talent, the watchmaker turns the problem around, and creates a new rotor that winds in only one direction with a ball bearing system autoblocant.
The ceramic balls allow the rotor to move in one direction and block it in the other. In this way, every infinitesimal movement is maximally exploited for an optimized winding of the watch. The new caliber retains the characteristics of the classic Octa with: a five day power reserve (120H) and a variable inertia balance wheel for an optimum yield that offers each model of the Octa line an irreproachable stability.
Also in accordance to his clients’ observations, François Paul Journe takes advantage of this new caliber to offer two new models with central hands : « Some of our clients told me they had difficulty reading the time on the classical Octa dial, so I took advantage of the new caliber’s creation to build the Octa Automatic Reserve and the Octa Automatic Lune whose dial is inspired by that of the Chonomètre Souverain - The Octa collection is conceived for all lifestyles, from the most extreme to most quiet !
