F.P.Journe presents the new model of its lineSport, the Centigraphe Sport in Titanium grade 5 enlarged to 44mm diameter, with assorted Titanium bracelet with articulated links. The bezel in Titanium with numbers of a new topography integrated in the ceramic mass follows the codes of the Chronographe Rattrapante.
For the first time, a new bright yellow dial brings a new intensity to the lineSport with luminescent appliqué numbers surrounded with black as well as sapphire counters with red numbers.
In a constant quest for performance and lightness, the movement of haute horology and the dial are made in aluminium alloy. This innovative sports watch weighs only 75 grams for an absolute comfort. With its measure of the 100th of a second, the Centigraphe is a perfect match.
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. The 100th of a second hand revolves around the dial in one second on a scale marked in hundredths of a second. On the dial at 2 o’clock, the hand revolves once every 20 seconds on a time scale divided into seconds. The third dial, at 6 o’clock is graduated for 10 minutes.
The chronograph is started, stopped and zeroed by an ergonomic designed rocker at 2 o’clock in the case band, instead of the usual buttons on either side of the crown. 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.
