The FFC Bleu was the talk of the town when only one piece was produced worldwide for the Only Watch in 2021. Inspired by the prototype, the FFC is being reproduced in a very small number of platinum cases, based on the idea brought to François-Paul Journe by Francis Ford Coppola of using five fingers to display the numbers 1 to 12. The dial has a single hand engraving. The dial features a statue of a hand with five fingers folded back to indicate the time from 1 to 12, based on an old blueprint of a prosthetic limb made by a famous French barber-surgeon. The minutes, on the other hand, are indicated by a triangular hand that makes a complete circle around the hand. This ingenious movement is controlled by an octa-caliber with multiple cams and levers, a remontoire mechanism, and a long power reserve of approximately five days. In this piece, the hand statues are made of titanium.
