The watch comes in a 38 or 40mm wide case in 18k red gold or platinum. You can simply choose which size you like. F.P. Journe doesn't like large watches, so 40mm wide is a max for most of his timepieces. The new movement inside is the FPJ 1300-3, done itself in 18 rose gold, and it is an automatic. The movement has the time (shown with the blue hands), and a GMT hand (in gold). You also have a subsidiary seconds dial, 120 hour power reserve indicator, jumping big date indicator, and a UTC (GMT) indicator shown as a globe. The colors on the turning globe help indicate whether a place in the map is in "winter or summer" time. Keeping true to his design ethos, this new Octa UTC watch will certainly be of value to his clients looking for a simple UTC (GMT) function without the clutter of a dedicated world time function.
