The Kari Voutilainen Masterpiece No.7  5 Comments


When I received the invitation to photograph this watch, I enthusiatically agreed as I had become a Voutilainen fan since I photographed his first Chronograph earlier this year. A very distinctive style of watch making yet - old school.

Each of the masterpiece series is a distinct and individual watch with no copies. No.7 is a decimal Minute Repeater’ caliber, which strikes hours, 10 minute intervals and minutes. It has second hand placement at 6 o’clock and a 24-hour indicator for a second time zone has been added at 12 o’clock. The day and night dials of this indicator are engraved with stylized sun and moon figures in 18 carat yellow and white gold. The back of the watch has been hand engraved by master engraver Eddy Jaquet, with a design based on the theme of the ‘Seven Sisters’ from the myth of the Pleiades.

I successfully captured a fair number of images of this watch and decided to put them together in a WMV movie for easy viewing. To download the file CLICK HERE.

Please note that this file is over 6mb and would take sometime to download if you are not on broadband. Hope you like the presentation!
