Lot Essay

F.P Journe produced the Octa Zodiaque in a limited edition of 150 pieces between 2003 and 2005. With the dial that transitions from simplicity in the center to complication around the edges, Journe alluded to the position of the stars in the sky. The outer ring rotates to display the current zodiac sign at the 12 o'clock position. The silver and slate grey dial is reminiscent of the other models of the Octa collection; however, the Zodiaque is only the second watch from F.P. Journe that features central hour and minute hands.
