Alexandre Ghotbi on Geneva Watch Auction: EIGHT

Almost 90 years separate 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 common, we ask Geneva's Head of Sale, Alex Ghotbi, to present both watches for us.
