Kari Voutilainen - GMT-6 Double Back

| No comment
The work of the Finnish watchmaker Kari Voutilainen is inspired by the idea of creating timepieces that will pass from generation to generation. To achieve this goal, his solidly engineered, classic wristwatches are entirely hand-made and produced in very limited editions, often tailored on the individual desires of the future owner.

Only precious metals are used to create the cases. All the movement components - except for balance-springs, mainsprings and watch-jewels - are manufactured from start to finish in Voutilainen workshops.

His latest creation is the Voutilainen GMT-6 Double Back whose 39 mm platinum case houses a proprietary movement, entirely conceived, designed, produced, finished and assembled in Voutilainen workshops.

The movement, slow-beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour and offering 65 hours of power reserve, contains a free sprung-balance system that ensures perfect timing of the watch according to strict tolerance criteria. The balance has four gold inertia-blocks to adjust the daily rate.

The escapement is characterised by two escape-wheels providing a direct impulse to the balance through the roller/jewel. This escapement is extremely efficient and requires less energy than traditional lever escapements, offering gains in terms of longevity and stability in everyday use.

The elegant balance-cock offers an unobstructed view of the escapement and balance allowing the owner to admire the synchronised movements of the escape-wheels through the sapphire crystal back protected with an engine-turned duster enriched by a transparent grand feu enamel in blue colour.

The guilloché dial in solid silver features a central section with a transparent grand feu enamel in an eye-catching red colour. The applied numerals are crafted from gold.

At 6 o'clock, the GMT indicator takes the form of a disc which shows 24 hours and includes two half discs indicating day and night. The two halves are engine-turned by hand with blue and orange transparent grand feu enamel. The second time-zone can be easily adjusted by pressing the crown.
