This handmade, platinum Voutilainen Vingt-8* is, in many ways, the embodiment of artisanal, independent watchmaking. Made entirely at the Voutilainen workshop in Môtiers, near Geneva, the piece demonstrates Kari's uncompromising dial and movement finishing in addition to his distinctive watchmaking style.
WHAT MAKES A VOUTILAINEN WATCH?
After a period spent restoring some of the finest watches from the last three centuries, Kari Voutilainen set out as an independent watchmaker.
His work has been welcomed with great acclaim, on account of its unique aesthetic and quality. Every component in his watches involves manual labour: from the bridges and the smallest of screws to adjusting tolerances, polishing and angling.
His efforts have been recognised with more than half a dozen awards from the GPHG (Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève), the most prestigious award ceremony in the watch industry. The Vingt-8 collection has long been a centrepiece of the watchmaker's offering, representing the canvas on which he has continually experimented over the years.
