Almost 90 years seperate the following watches. Patek Philippe's gold single-button chronograph wristwatch, one of the first of its kind, and Kari Voutilainen's platinum Vingt-8, a marvel of contemporary watchmaking, stand at opposite ends of watchmaking's history. To understand what they have in commong, we ask Geneva's Head of Sale, Alex Ghotbi, to present  both watches for us. 

For more information on these and other rare watches included in The Geneva Watch Auction: EIGHT, please browse our online catalogue.
