Technical description


For this movement unlike any other, F.P. Journe has set up an ergonomic chronograph activation system with a rocker arm that allows the chronograph to start, stop and zero at 2 o’clock in the case band, instead of the usual buttons on either side of the crown. The chronograph function has also been isolated from the timekeeping function, meaning that the balance amplitude is unaffected when the chronograph is running.
These two innovations have been patented.

The hand-wound mechanical movement of the Centigraphe indicates elapsed times from a 100th of a second to 10 minutes, visible on 3 dials, each with a time scale in red and a tachometer scale in black.
The tachometer scales converts time units for 1 kilometer into speeds ranging from 6 km/h —walking pace — to 36'000 km/h, well above the escape velocity of a rocket going into low-level orbit.

THIS MODEL WAS PRODUCED IN 2016.
LIMITED SERIES NUMBERED 1 TO 10

LIMITED SERIES FOR THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BOUTIQUE F.P.JOURNE TOKYO

THE BRAND CONCEPT OF F.P.JOURNE BOUTIQUES AROUND THE WORLD IS ENRICHED BY A NUMBER OF SPECIAL SERVICES AND UNIQUE COLLECTIONS OF LIMITED TIMEPIECES RESERVED EXCLUSIVELY FOR ITS CLIENTS. THE F.P.JOURNE ANNIVERSARY TIMEPIECES EDITION WAS CREATED TO HONOUR THE CLIENTS OF THE BRAND’S BOUTIQUES.

THIS EXCLUSIVE EDITION OF THE CENTIGRAPHE SOUVERAIN IS MADE IN A PERFECT HARMONY OF COLOURS: A 40 MM POLISHED TITANIUM CASE, A RUTHENIUM DIAL WITH SAPPHIRE REGISTERS, AN 18K 6N GOLD CROWN AND ROCKER, THE EMBLEMATIC MECHANICAL MOVEMENT WITH MANUAL WINDING IN 18K ROSE GOLD AND THE BURGUNDY ALLIGATOR STRAP.
THE CENTIGRAPHE IS A SPECTACULAR MECHANICAL CHRONOGRAPH INDICATING 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 ON A SCALE MARKED IN HUNDREDTHS OF A SECOND. THE HAND ON THE RIGHT REVOLVES ONCE EVERY 20 SECONDS ON A TIME SCALE DIVIDED INTO 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. THE CENTIGRAPHE SOUVERAIN WAS AWARDED THE « L’AIGUILLE D’OR » (THE GOLDEN HAND ) AT THE GRAND PRIX D’HORLOGERIE OF GENEVA IN 2008. IT WAS ALSO ELECTED WATCH OF THE YEAR ON TIMEZONE.COM IN 2009.

THIS TOKYO ANNIVERSARY EDITION IN TITANIUM SOLD ONLY AT THE TOKYO BOUTIQUE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE, BUT CLIENTS CAN discover THE CENTIGRAPHE FROM THE LINESPORT COLLECTION IN PLATINUM OR IN 18K 6N GOLD OR IN TITANIUM, IN ALL F.P.JOURNE BOUTIQUES.

36,000 KM/H AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
THE ART TO CONVERT 6KM/H IN 36.000KM/H

A spectacular watch, the Centigraphe Souverain,
is a mechanical chronograph unlike any other

For the creation of the Centigraphe, things happened slightly differently than for other creations. I met Jean Todt through the ICM Foundation, and during the course of our meetings we discussed the ideal chronograph for the world of car racing. I thus remember research I carried out over 15 years ago for the creation of an exponential chronograph quickly showed me that a chronograph with 3 hands revolving at different speeds was a good starting base. I followed up with research on chronograph pushers, on questions of the balance of power in the movement, requirements, and energy loss, and I made use of a patent registered for the Sonnerie Souveraine. I patented 2 additional innovations concerning motricity. I am proud that Jean Todt has agreed to be the Centigraphe’s Godfather.

The Centigraphe represents a technical achievement in being the first wristwatch in the world equipped with a single hand wound movement allowing to measure elapsed times from one hundredth of a second to 10 minutes on three subsidiary dials. The hand of the first dial at 10 o’clock makes a turn in one second on a scale marked in hundredths of a second, making it theoretically possible to time an object moving at 360,000 km/h, or approximately 1/3000ths of the speed of light. The hand of the second dial at 2 o’clock is making a tour in 20 seconds, and the third hand of the dial at 6 o’clock, makes a tour in 10 minutes. A technical prowess to which can be added a power reserve of 80 hours – and 24 hours with the chronograph running.

The Centigraphe contributes to the Medical Research of the ICM
In purchasing the Centigraphe, you are also supporting the medical research carried out by the ICM – Institute of Brain and Spinal Cord in Paris - to help fight brain and spinal cord diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis… Along with Professor Gérard Saillant, Luc Besson, Jean Réno, Jean Todt, Michelle Yeoh and Michael Schumacher, amongst others, I have committed to donating 30% of the profits from the sale of each Centigraphe to the ICM, with no time limit.
