As befits such a virtuoso of complicated timepieces, this new watch by Kari Voutilainen incorporates a second time zone with 24-hour indicator and a retrograde power-reserve indicator.
As always, the movement is developed and handcrafted from start to finish inside the master watchmaker’s workshops, in the peace and tranquility of the Swiss village of Môtiers. Fashioned from maillechort, this top-flight mechanical movement comprises no fewer than 250 parts and 28 jewels.
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. The movement’s traditional finishes of Côtes de Genève and hand-chamfering can be admired through the sapphire crystal back, while the dial exudes refined elegance. T
he GMT indication at 6 o’clock embraces the small seconds, mirrored by the retrograde power-reserve indicator at 12 o’clock. 12-piece limited series.
