F.P. Journe completes Vagabondage trilogy but only loyal owners can buy one

FP Journe Vagabondage III

F.P. Journe has revealed the third and final timepiece in its Vagabondage Series, the Vagabondage III.

Only 137 will be produced; 69 in platinum and 68 in 18ct red gold.

Customer loyalty counts to F.P. Journe, and the company has given owners of the previous iteration, Vagabondage II, priority when it comes to buying version III. People who bought the last Vagabondage, or those that acquired them on the second hand market, will be asked to prove they own a Vagabondage II in order to jump the queue to buy a Vagabondage III.

The third edition retains the flat Tortue case, the same size as the Vagabondage II, with a manually wound movement with a remontoir d’égalité that advances the time train each second.

The inner smoked sapphire dial, framed by a screwed “appliqué” outer dial, still without the F.P. Journe signature, reveals the 18ct rose Gold movement.

A window at 10 o’clock displays the digital hour indications; another at 6h indicates the digital seconds; both are framed in white. The central minutes are indicated by a white hand, while the power reserve at 1h features a blued steel hand.

The Vagabondage III Series will be available in F.P. Journe Boutiques and Espaces, as well as authorised retailers.
