Lot Essay

Typically eye-catching and unmistakably F.P. Journe, the CTS2 manual winding Centigraphe is part of the ‘LineSport’ collection. In combining the Centigraphe Souverain movement with a LineSport case, F.P. Journe aimed to create the perfect motorsport timer. Available in either titanium, rose gold or platinum. The titanium version, of which the present watch is No. 001, was fitted with either the lemon (yellow) or anthracite aluminium alloy dial and luminous numerals. The movement is also made from aluminium alloy for lightness, overall the entire watch weighs only around 81 grams.
As for all F.P. Journe watches, the movement of this Centrigraphe Souverain comprises 284 components. The manually-wound mechanical dual-patent holding movement can measure elapsed times from a 100th of a second to ten minutes. The watch is 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 and is unaffected when the chronograph is in use, this is the other patent that the watch holds. 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.
The watches of F.P. Journe are ever more sought after and almost impossible to obtain. The present watch, number 001 of the yellow dial titanium Centigraphe model offers the opportunity for collectors and Journe aficionados to secure one of the key pieces of the series.
