Voutilainen GMT-6 | white gold
Cal. 28 GMT
It has two different engine-turned patterns on the blue, two-tone dial. Each pattern reflects light differently, giving the dial a mixture of tones and fantastic depth. Applied Roman numerals and steel, Breguet-style hands make up the face, while the GMT-disc at six o’clock is decoratively engraved, indicating day and night, with expressive detailing on the half-moon, stars and rising sun. Kari Voutilainen's signature tear-shaped lugs finish off this fantastic timepiece; showing both the watchmaker's uncompromising attention to detail and craftsmanship.
The GMT indication is displayed on the disk situated at six o’clock, inside the printing of the small-seconds, showing 24 hours. The GMT function is almost concealed, owing to its precise and neat integration. The disc is advanced by pressing the crown, moving the disc forward by one hour, with each engagement. The dial is made from solid-silver and engine-turned by hand in the Voutilainen workshop.
While inspiration for the GMT-6 movement comes from the Vingt-8, the GMT mechanism is entirely integrated within the Calibre 28. The movement features Voutilainen's direct impulse-escapement with two escape wheels. The exceptionally large, free-sprung balance beats at 2.5Hz, held in place by a long steel bridge with rounded arms. The 39 mm case is white-gold, and features Voutilainen's signature teardrop lugs.
On the reverse, the sapphire crystal exhibits the movement in full view, revealing the in-house Cal. 28, manufactured from German silver and titanium. Through the combination of a free-sprung balance, with Breguet over-coil and Grossmann interior curve, and 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 are as impressive as the mechanics. The watch has a 64-hour power reserve.
This Voutilainen GMT-6 example comes as a full set, with an original Voutilainen, gloss black, alligator strap; smoke-grey Nubuck strap; corresponding, white-gold tang buckle and its accompanying box and original paperwork.
