The Vagabondage III, by F.P. Journe, features a never-before-seen watch function: seconds markers that "jump."
There is nothing like hearing the word "no" to inflame the passions and desire of a collector, and few understand that concept better than Geneva-based independent watchmaker F.P.Journe.
In the world of high-end watchmaking, quality, scarcity, and availability (often the lack thereof) are vital parts of the equation. Journe utilized these brilliant tactics with the January release of the third (and final) part of a three-part series of watches: the Vagabondage III.
