The PuristS 10th anniversary party was held in Las Vegas and an auction of the Voutilainen PuristS 10th Vingt-8 Piece Uniques seemed like a fun idea at the time
The incoming queries (very legitimate concerns) about logistics, international gaming laws, trans-national & local taxation, time zone differences, and even statistical gaming theory (Thank you, Prof. XYZ) led us to reconsider.
After discussion between the PuristSPro executive and Mr Voutilainen, it was decided to keep it simple as a regular sale like for all the P10 watches.
There are two Piece Uniques for sale at fixed price and first-past-the-post rules apply.
Rose Gold Voutilainen PuristS 10th Vingt-8 at CHF 78,000 equivalent. (Available Immediately)
White Gold Voutilainen PuristS 10th Vingt-8 at CHF 83,000 equivalent. (Available Immediately)
Usual back-log wait for a Voutilainen watch is 15 months but these Piece Uniques (one piece of each gold colour only) are ready now.
Buyer is responsible for your local country Customs duty / import taxes etc.
Voutilainen will provide a valid CITES certificate for the leather strap legalities.
