A Pre Basel preview from the Finnish master watchmaker and a favourite of the Deployant team: Kari Voutilainen
Presenting the Voutilainen GMR. The timepiece incorporates a second time zone with 24-hour indicator at the 6 o’clock position and a retrograde power-reserve indicator located at the 12 o’clock position.
An ingenious mechanism allows the second time zone to be adjusted by the crown, jumping one hour at each push, rather than turning freely, thus maintaining absolute precision with local time.
Kari Voutilainen’s wonderful finishing of Côtes de Genève and hand-chamfering can be admired through the sapphire crystal back.
This will be limited to 12 pieces and is available in 18K white gold, 18K red gold or platinum case.
