Introducing the F.P. Journe Vagabondage III, with instantaneous jumping seconds

On the 19th of December 2016, F.P. Journe sent out its wishes for the 2016-2017 holiday season, and teased a new timepiece that was going to be revealed on January 16, 2017. The video showed three discs, two of which were in close proximity and jumped instantaneously, and many – us included – took this to mean that the brand was planning to unveil the hotly anticipated Vagabondage III. Sure enough, that’s exactly what the brand revealed earlier this month.

Vagabondage III completes F.P. Journe’s planned trifecta.
