It’s SIHH week! Furthermore, as of now, our California gatherer bunch was looking impressive so far with our conventional Saturday night supper with companion and virtuoso watchmaker Kari Voutilainen.
Voutilainen brought along a few of the watches that he will introduce this week at SIHH and was sufficiently benevolent to give authorization for us to show them here before the authority beginning of the show.
One constraint was that the lighting in our standard supper place is totally wicked; in any case, with a combination of supplemental light sources, high ISO settings, and some white equilibrium change in post-preparing I had the option to catch nice photographs of three of the new offerings.
First up: a naval force dialed Vingt-8 in white gold, seen first within my shoddy tabletop light tent.
And, on my wrist, wearing pleasantly as Kari’s watches consistently do.
The hit of the night with MrsG was a unique GMT-6 in platinum with blue and orange plated guilloche dial and plated official case back. Here are three shots: front and back on the table and afterward on the wrist of a (extremely glad) MrsG.
The hands and markers on these pieces are exceptionally fascinating: while they look practically white, they are truth be told made of gold that is “wet sandblasted” (an uncertain interpretation of the French-language term) and afterward treated with rhodium.
MrsG and I were likewise pleased to see a delivering of the watch that Kari is creating for Basel. I can’t say a lot regarding it, however can uncover that it is being made in light of women and will, in its own particular manner as I would see it, rival the Hisui that won the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève for its imaginative utilization of ornamental media.
There were a couple of different pieces, including a brilliant “all-dark” Vingt-8 with a “dark gold” treated iced development, however I’d preferably allowed you to see the authority photographs over my moderately un-distinguishable shots. I’ll leave you with one last picture of a phenomenal burgundy-dialed Vingt-8 and urge you to remain tuned here at Quill & Pad for additional all through the week!
