With SIHH 2016 having just closed its doors, it's now time to take stock of what happened during the weeklong Geneva fair. Here's a roundup of what took place at the inaugural Carre des Horlogers, the area dedicated to independent watchmakers at SIHH 2016.
Kari Voutilainen has created a unique dual time zone GMT-6 fitted with a brilliant blue champleve enamel dial and equipped with the proprietary calibre 28 for Only Watch 2015.
The Masterpiece 7 was one of Kari Voutilainen's earlier watches, a LeCoultre ebauche completed as a decimal repeater with a second time zone function, inside a hunter-style case with a hand-engraved back.
