Voutilainen Vingt-8 | Cal. 28 | White Gold | Blue dial
It has three different engine-turned patterns on the blue dial. Each pattern reflects light differently, giving the dial a mixture of tones and depth. Applied Arabic numerals at 3-9-12, a sub-second dial at six o’clock, and Breguet-style gold hands with blued-steel rings make up the face. At the request of the original client, applied 'dots' mark out all twelve hours. A smoke-grey nubuck strap and Kari Voutilainen's signature tear-shaped lugs finish off this fantastic timepiece; showing both the watchmaker's uncompromising attention to detail and craftsmanship.
This Voutilainen is just as impressive inside the case; the sapphire crystal on the reverse allows one to see inside the movement, revealing the rich palette of hues and forms. The in-house Cal. 28 is made from German silver and titanium, and finished with a frosted effect in a rose gold colour.
Through the combination of a a free-sprung balance with Breguet over-coil and a Grossmann interior curve, and the signature direct impulse escapement with two large (13.6mm) escapement wheels, a high degree of engineering ingenuity is accomplished. One of the hallmarks of Voutilainen as a manufacture is their superlative hand-finishing; with expert anglage and a mixture of polished, brushed and frosted surfaces, the aesthetics of the movement is as impressive as the mechanics. The watch has a 50-hour power reserve.
