On the 7th of November 2015 in Geneva, the 6th edition of the biennial charity auction of unique timepieces will take place conducted by Phillips Watch Auctions and at the helm the auction maestro Aurel Bacs. The proceeds from the auction will raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. 43 unique timepieces will be auctioned off. The latest piece to be revealed for the auction is from independent watchmaker Kari Voutilainen. Presenting the Only Watch 2015: Kari Voutilainen GMT-6.
Kari Voutilainen is known for his attention to detail, level of finishing, movement design and stunning dials. This piece is no exception. This unique “GMT-6” timepiece features an exquisite Grand-Feu enamel dial. Fitted with a GMT mechanism that keeps track of two time zones, the white gold, hand-guilloché dial of the GMT-6 is enameled at the center, with a day-night indicator at 6 o’clock illustrated by two enameled appliqués. Impeccably hand-finished throughout, it is housed in a stainless steel case measuring 39 mm. The depth of the blue Grand Feu is captivating and a lovely contrast is provided by the day/night indicator of half blue and yellow and the roman numerals of 3, 9 and 12.
This timepiece features the same movement found in the normal production Kari Voutilainen GMT-6 models, efficient movement entirely designed, produced, and finished at the workshop of Kari Voutilainen. It features two escape wheels in a configuration that directly impulses the balance wheel, yielding improved longevity and stability.
We could spend a long time just staring at the movement with a loupe.
Engraved on the back of the stainless steel case is “Only Watch” and “Unique Piece”
We have a feeling there will be a lot of bidders for this watch!
