Last year FP Journe launched the first in aluminium cased line of sports watches, the Centigraphe Sport, the first of which hammered for close to US$500,000 at a charity auction for the Japanese tsunami. Journe has just unveiled the second model in the lineSport, the Octa Sport.
The movement inside is similar to that in the regular Octa with 120 hours power reserve and big date, with the main difference being the aluminium bridges in the Octa Sport. Together with the aluminium case, the Octa Sport weighs only 52 g. The case diameter is 42 mm. But given Journe’s reputation for delicate movements, I wonder how this will hold up as a sports watch. – SJX
