    Lauded for producing uniquely complicated and sophisticated timepieces which push the boundaries of expert horological craftsmanship, F.P. Journe is an exclusive watchmaker that produces less than a thousand timepieces annually. With exacting attention to detail, F.P. Journe's belief is that beauty begins from outside rather than from within – he commences his creative process by designing the dial and then arranging the internal mechanism accordingly.

    Each of the models in the Octa series possesses its own identity, although all share a common design and microengineering lineage. The Octa Réserve de Marche is the premier model in the series and hence is emblematic of the aesthetic and technical virtues of the Octa calibre. The 207 components mechanism with an impressive 120 hours power reserve capability comprises a 22-carat rose gold rotor accompanied by dedicated 4-arm balance with inertial adjustment and frequency of 21,600 vph.
