    Recognized by its elegant case with distinctive tear drop lugs, the Voutilainen 28Sport perfectly embodies the philosophy of the firm where quality and craft meet robustness. Highly regarded as one of the best watchmakers in our generation, Voutilainen pieces are hand-made and assembled from the bridges to the screws. Having won numerous awards from the GPHG (Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève), Voutilainen’s creations are with no doubt top of its class.

    In 2011, the firm reached a milestone during the release of the Vingt-8. Being the first wristwatch to feature a movement manufactured entirely at the workshop of Kari Voutilainen, the Vingt-8 has since given birth to a wide array of iterations from complicated to decorative examples.

    Packed with a subtle twist and cased either in grade 5 titanium or the lesser known stainless steel, the 28Sport was released in 2020 as a limited edition of only 8 pieces in each material worldwide. Giving the Vingt-8 a sporty appeal, the 28Sport powered by the firm’s in-house cal. 28 featuring its signature large balance wheel equipped with a unique balance spring system involving the exterior of the spring using a traditional Phillips overcoil and its internal curve using the Grossmann curve. The movement is wonderfully hand-finished with Côtes de Genève and perlage on the base plate.

    While its mechanical features are celebrated, the dial is also a prowess on its own. Displaying a two-tone appeal, the outer track for the hours is finished with the firm’s signature engine turned guilloche technique while its main dial and small seconds register are completed with a layer of glossy black onyx. Topped off with vibrant orange indexes, the white accents on the dial are filled with Superluminova allowing the main features of the dial to illuminate in the dark.

    Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories, this fresh-to-the-market stainless steel example numbered 6 is a rare opportunity for collectors to get their hands on a rare timepiece created by none other than the revered Kari Voutilainen.
