V I - Digital Hours
In the wake of the resounding success of that auction, F.P.Journe launched the Vagabondage I Series in 2006. The name Vagabondage comes from the fact that time is indicated by a wandering digital display; the design itself was “vagabond” in that it was created by François-Paul Journe as a satellite creation, in addition to his regular collections. This limited series with a flat Tortue case differs from the round cases generally favoured by the brand. It was produced in a series of 69 pieces in Platinum and 10 pieces in Platinum set with baguette diamonds, with a manually wound 18K rose Gold movement. Even without promotion or publicity, clients went wild. They snapped them up, and the Vagabondage legend was born.
