FP Journe first unveiled the lineSport range of watches – the Centigraphe Sport and the Octa Sport – in 2011. They caused quite a stir upon their launch, largely due to the fact that they were made entirely out of aluminum – both the case and the movement. The lineSport line inducted both models in titanium 2014 and now the brand has updated both models. We have all the details below.
Both watches are now upsized to 44 mm wide cases in anthracite grey grade 5 titanium with matching bracelets. As before, the cases and bracelets feature the signature rubber inserts of the Line Sport. The bezel is made from titanium has a ceramic insert. It follows the codes of the Chronographe Monopoussoir Rattrapante with numbers engraved in the Titanium base.
A bright yellow lacquer dial brings a pop of color to the lineSport range, and also features luminescent appliqué numbers surrounded with black as well as sapphire counters with red numbers. Like all lineSport models, the movement is made from aluminum alloy. Both watches weigh just 75 grams.
The Centigraphe is powered by Calibre 1506, a hand-wound mechanical movement that can measure elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes. The chronograph is started, stopped and zeroed by a patented rocker at 2 o’clock in the case band, instead of the usual buttons on either side of the crown. The movement has 80 hours of power reserve without the chronograph, and 24 hours with the chronograph running.
The Octa Sports ARS2 features a bean-shaped day and night indication at 9 o’ clock and a larger date aperture. Powered by the Octa Caliber 1300-3, the self-winding movement uses a titanium rotor and a tungsten segment and has a power reserve of 160 hours.
The Centigraphe Sport and the Octa Sport are also available with a case and bracelet in Platinum or 18K red Gold with hammered finishing. While the Centigraphe Sport is priced at CHF56,000, the Octa Sport ARS2 is priced at CHF36,000.
