Vagabondage III

F.P. Journe 2017

Men's

Vagabondage III square

 

 

Vagabondage III is the third and final instalment in

the series by F.P.Journe, produced as a limited edition of 69 pieces in

platinum and 68 in red gold. The story began in 2004 when, for the 30th

anniversary of Antiquorum, François-Paul Journe imagined three original

watches, with a flat tortue case and a digital time display on a dial that bore

no signature. Sold at auction after intense bidding, their success prompted the

watchmaker to launch the Vagabondage series two years later, made up of three

watches corresponding to the original drawings. This third chapter takes the

form of a digital display of hours and seconds, with minutes shown by a white

central hand and power reserve measured by a blued steel hand at 1 o'clock. And

so the three digital time displays reach their conclusion and the triumvirate

is complete.
