Esplendidos – Angus Davies reviews the F. P. Journe Octa Automatique Lune
The F. P. Journe Octa Automatique Lune is presented with a new Havana dial which captivates onlookers with its capacity to change colour depending on how it interacts with the light.
F. P. Journe, creators and purveyors of fine timepieces, has unveiled a version of its existing Octa Automatique Lune equipped with a new and very special ‘Havana dial’. The dial has been produced for the Genevan-based watch brand by Les Cadraniers de Genève and is composed of gold and ruthenium.
The resultant face of the watch transitions from pale milky chocolate tones to rich dark tobacco. This characteristic of changing appearance depends on the influence of the sun or other light source on the dial surface.
