More about Vagabondage III Platinum RARE

This is a platinum FP Journe Vagabondage III. It has an alligator leather strap with a platinum FP Journe double deployant clasp, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. It has a pull out, 2-position winding crown, and an exhibition sapphire display case back secured with 4 screws, engraved with "FP JOURNE-VAGABONDAGE-INVENIT ET FECIT," an edition number, and hallmarks. The 37.6mm by 45.2mm (including lugs) solid flat turtle shaped case, straight lugs, and flat bezel are polished/brushed. The smoked transparent sapphire dial has a trapezoidal window at 9 o'clock for the jumping hour, a classic minute hand that rotates once an hour, and at the bottom of the dial, at the 6 o'clock position, there are two more trapezoidal windows that display the jumping seconds register. A remontoir d'egalite (constant force mechanism) is inserted into the gear train to manage the energy for the rotating jumping discs. The three black radial hour and seconds discs have luminous white Arabic numerals. It has a power reserve of 40-hours with a white/red arc-shaped indicator at 1 o'clock, and it's water resistant to 50 meters/165 feet. The 7.84mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This FP Journe Vagabondage III has a mechanical manual winding FP Journe caliber 1514 movement. It's 18k rose gold with cotes de Geneve embellishment, and it's constructed with 32 jewels, 249 components, twin barrels, four inertia weights, and a flat Anachron micro flamed spring. It includes a baseplate with partial circular graining, polished screw heads with chamfered slots, polished and rounded pegs, mobile stud holders, and a self-compensating free sprung balance. It has a pinned GE stud, a pallet escapement with a 15-tooth escape wheel, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3 Hz). The FP Journe Vagabondage III is the final watch in the Vagabondage Trilogy that started in 2006. The Vagabondage III was introduced in 2017 and is limited to only 69 pieces in platinum. It is the first wristwatch to successfully integrate a jumping seconds complication.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
