Centigraphe Souverain

“The Centigraphe is a unique creation,” says F.P. Journe, the man behind the watch brand bearing his name. “To create this watch,” he says, “I had to forget everything ever done in terms of chronographs in order to redesign on a blank sheet of paper.” The concept was inspired by Jean Todt, a well-known figure in the Formula 1 race-car world. “I realized that there was nothing serious enough in mechanical horology to time today’s racing cars to the 100th of a second,” Journe says. The result is Centigraphe.
