The F.P.Journe Octa Sport sports wristwatch is a kind of unique time meter, the case of which is made of aluminum alloy. A similar experience of creating a very light watch made of aluminum was already embodied in the F.P. Journe Centigraphe Sport model in June last year. At the end of winter, the Swiss manufactory F.P. Journe published a press release of the novelty, which will not be deprived of attention by representatives of the sports world. Struggling with the extra grams of their uniforms, athletes choose lightweight watches to measure new records.
F.P.Journe sports wristwatch with ultra light weight.
The F.P.Journe Octa Sport sports wristwatch is a new model in the sports watch line, the main trump card of which is its low weight – the mechanism with the case weighs only fifty–three grams. The F.P. Journe manufactory presented a new men's watch on the second of February 2012. Watchmaker Francois-Paul Journ is in constant creative search and the production of aluminum sports watches is a bold attempt to discover new horizons.
A difficult material was chosen for the manufacture of the case and mechanism of the watch. Aluminum alloy, which is used in aircraft construction, has ultralight and heavy-duty properties. In the workshops of the F.P.Journe manufactory, a special aluminum alloy processing technology is used, thanks to which the metal's resistance to scratches and oxidation has increased. Another positive property of the innovative material used in F.P.Journey Octa Sport is its hypoallergenic.
F.P.Journey Octa Sport: a caliber weighing as much as a feather.
F.P.Journe Octa Sport is a men's wristwatch specially made for top–level athletes. They combine the latest technologies and high watchmaking. Homegrown F.P.Journe calibers are known all over the world for their accuracy and filigree finish. In a round case with a diameter of forty-two millimeters is the F.P. Journey 1300-3 mechanism weighing only eleven grams.
On the dial, in addition to the hour, minute and second hands, there is also a date aperture, as well as day/night and power reserve indicators. By the way, the mechanism can go without winding for one hundred and twenty hours. The caliber of the novelty has the characteristic features that are inherent in the Octo line watches: a large power reserve and balance with variable inertia. In the F.P.Journey Octa Sport, the balance is equipped with four inertial weights, because the aluminum alloy is very light. The fastening systems of the parts were created using a Nivatronic laser.
Rubber shock absorbers are located on the crown and sidewalls of the case, which prevent damage to the main components on impact. Many Swiss watches also have their own protection system against external influences. With the help of a protected three-position crown, the watch is wound and the date is corrected.
