Lot Essay

As for all F.P. Journe watches, the movement of this Centrigraphe Souverain comprises 284 components. The manually-wound mechanical movement can measure elapsed times from a 100th of a second to ten minutes. The striking subsidiary dials with red Arabic numerals indicate three time-reading options: for the 100th of a second subsidiary dial, the second hand revolves around the dial in one second on a scale marked in hundredths of a second. For the 20 seconds subsidiary dial, the second hand has 20 seconds to complete a round. Lastly, for the 10 minutes subsidiary dial, the minute hand will take half an hour to complete its tour. The watch is also equipped with a patented re-set button in the band at two o'clock, which can be rocked back and forth to make the chronograph start, stop or return to zero. This system is an ingenious variation of the standard buttons used in chronograph watches on each side of the crown. Moreover, the maintaining power and power reserve in this watch are highly efficient. The mainspring barrel features a maintaining power system to ensure that the driving force does not decrease during winding. Without utilizing the chronograph function, the mainspring can supply a minimum of 100 hours of power reserve and 24 hours if the chronograph is being operated continuously.

One of the more complex movements created by the celebrated firm, it was produced in various color combinations of dial and case. Recently, an anniversary model was introduced in titanium to celebrate the tenth anniversary of each of Journe's boutiques.
