    January 2017, FP Journe once again captures the collector's imagination by debuting a world's first in watchmaking. Vagabondage III presents the first ever jumping digital seconds in a wristwatch. Considered one of the holy grails of independent watchmaking, this timepiece demonstrates very high technical achievement due to the energy needed for such a complication, all the while retaining its iconic "Flat Tortue" case shape and dimensions of the previous model. Like the Vagabondage II, this timepiece was produced in Platinum (69 units) and Red Gold (68 Units), both individually numbered.
