F.P. Journe celebrates the 10th anniversary of its Geneva boutique with an eminently collectible ten-piece edition of the Centigraphe Souverain.

The Anniversary Centigraphe celebrates the 10th Anniversary of each F.P.Journe Boutique. After Hong Kong and Tokyo, the Geneva F.P.Journe Boutique was the third to celebrate its Anniversary, unveiling its Anniversary Edition in a limited Series of 10 pieces. . Each piece is numbered followed by the name of the corresponding city.
This exclusive edition is made in a perfect harmony of colours: a 40mm polished Titanium case, a Ruthenium dial with sapphire registers, an 18K Gold crown and rocker, the emblematic mechanical movement with manual winding in 18K rose Gold and the burgundy alligator strap.
The Anniversary Centigraphe is exclusively available in the Boutique celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Geneva introduced its anniversary watch with a retrospective exhibition of the F.P.Journe Anniversary Series (Chronomètre Souverain 2005 – Chronomètre à Résonance 2006 – Tourbillon Souverain 2007 – Octa Perpétuelle 2010).

The Centigraphe is a spectacular mechanical chronograph that indicates elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials, each with a time scale in red.
On the left, the 100th of a second hand revolves around the dial in one second and the hand on the right revolves once every 20 seconds. The hand at 6 o’clock makes a tour in 10 minutes.
The chronograph is started, stopped and zeroed by a rocker located at 2 o’clock in the case band. This ergonomic design, perfectly fitted to the wristwatch, is patented.
A second patent was granted for the mechanism’s ingenious configuration, which effectively isolates the chronograph from the timekeeping function. This means the balance amplitude is unaffected when the chronograph is running.
