Sell Your Voutilainen Watch

Kari Voutilainen stands out amongst the independents. He has built an entire manufacture from scratch after refining his craft at the restoration house of Michel Parmigiani. We are proud to be the only endorsed seller of his pre-owned watches.

Based in his hill-top workshop in Môtiers, he is well-known for the quality of his finishing, impressive mechanics and eye-catching guilloché dials, which are coveted by several other note-worthy brands around the industry. Having handled many of his pieces over the years, it becomes clear that his watches possess a unique quality hard to find anywhere else.

“Money is not driving me to work, I am only concerned with quality,”

Over the course of the last ten years, we have spent time studying the brand, visiting the workshop in Môtiers, and speaking with Kari Voutilainen to better appreciate the watchmaker’s ethos and the legacy he hopes to leave behind.

It is this knowledge that has helped us become a valuable source for those seeking information as well as rare examples of his exclusive pre-owned pieces.

A Collected Man has forged a close partnership with the watchmaker, having sold more than 40 pieces to date. We remain the only endorsed pre-owned seller of the brand’s watches.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the options for selling my Voutilainen watch via A Collected Man?

We enjoy working with our clients to establish the optimum way to find the next home for your watch. Depending on your preference, we can offer your watch at a fixed price on our website, and on our various channels. Alternatively, we can auction your watch at a pre-agreed date, while allowing you to set a guaranteed minimum return. Lastly, we can try to find a new home for your watch offline via a private sale, allowing you to retain privacy of the sale.

How can I sell my watches – what payment options do you offer?

Finding the most suitable way for you is our priority. We can sell your watch on your behalf on consignment, while you retain ownership of it. We work with you, bringing our expertise, to find a new home for your watch. Alternatively we can purchase your watch directly from you, at an agreed price. Efficient and convenient. However, if you have another watch you are interested in or would like to part with, we are also happy to explore how we can help you with refining your collection through part-exchange.

What kind of watches do you accept?

We accept a wide range of pieces, and while our particular focus is on independent watchmakers and high-end brands, above all we look for quality within a piece, and a sense of rich history. If you believe that a piece may be of interest to us, please get in touch, and we will be happy to assess it. We provide a complimentary estimate for your watch.

What countries do you consider watches from?

We source and sell watches globally. Our team can arrange for your watch to reach us safely through insured shipping and armed couriers, from all corners of the world.

How do you value a watch?

We rely on a wide range of benchmarks, in addition to current market dynamics to narrow down the appropriate price for your watch. Several other factors are also taken into consideration, such as age and the condition of the watch.

Previous Voutilainen Sales


Observatoire | Unique Piece | Rose Gold

This Observatoire, made in 2006, pre-dates many of the recognisable aesthetic codes that Voutilainen has developed. The finishing still meets the same high standards the watchmaker has set for himself. This unique piece’s unadorned white dial and straight lugs represents a rare find even from this rarely seen brand.


Masterpiece Chronograph II | Stainless Steel

Commissioned by a group of American collectors, only 10 pieces of the Masterpiece Chronograph II were ever produced. This particular example is the only one from the set that was made in stainless-steel.


Monopoussoir | White Gold

This Monopoussoir from 2010, made in a series of just five pieces, showcases Voutailainen’s masterful restoration and decoration of a vintage Valjoux calibre.


Vingt-8 | Besançon Observatory Certified | Platinum

Specially commissioned by a collector, this Vingt-8 is one of the only examples certified by the Besançon Observatory – a characteristic usually found on the earliest Observatoire watches. Voutilainen's attention to detail and craftsmanship is present in every aspect of the watch, and the dial is especially unusual, as it is particularly minimalistic, devoid of any guilloché patterns.

A notable sale

This TBR-1 Prototype, sold at A Collected Man, is a unique piece that demonstrates the full reach and skill of Kari Voutilainen's work as an independent watchmaker. Nearly 10 years in the making, the piece bears many of Voutilainen's aesthetic hallmarks, but the movement truly shines through here. It is equipped with a one-minute tourbillon and a constant force mechanism incorporated into the going train, that gives the watch its jumping-minute function, and is certified a chronometre by the Besançon Observatory.

The TBR-1 is the most expensive Kari Voutilainen watch sold publicly.

Sold on 21st Oct 2023.
