Finnish watchmaker Kari Voutilainen, now living in Switzerland, started his eponymous brand in 2002. He is known for his exquisite guilloche’ work and his memorable Haute Horology complications. In fact, in 2005, he introduced the world’s first modern decimal repeater, which chimes the hours, the ten-minute intervals past the hours and the minutes. He is highly acclaimed, has won multiple awards and prizes, and is sought after by the finest watch brands to create exquisite dials for them. His Voutilainen brand watches include the Starry Night (Metiers d’ Arts) line, TP1 pocket watches, the 28 collection, and the Masterpiece series.
