Footnotes

  • In 2007 F. P. Journe introduced to the horological world the Centigraphe Souverain. By arranging the chronograph system separate to the timekeeping function, the Centigraphe is able to measure from 10 minutes down to 1/100th of a second without draining the watch of power or affecting its accuracy. Another unique feature of the watch is its patented ergonomic chronograph activation system that functions via a rocker set in the band rather than the traditional chronograph buttons or pushers. This sleek design makes the motion of start, stop and resetting much more intelligible for the user.

    Four years later Journe gave us the Centigraphe Sport made of the exceptionally lightweight material aluminium. The Centigraphe Sport was available for just 3 years from 2011 to 2014 and saw the launch of the new 'lineSport' collection which would be dedicated to manufacturing watches with sportsmen and women in mind. The integral lightness of the watch was at the core of this new initiative allowing the watch to be worn effortlessly whilst retaining FP Journes unique approach.
