Picture Summary (click to view) sold-kari-voutilainen-purists-10th-vingt-8----2-piece-uniques-in-rg-amp-wg

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 smile

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.


RG version illustrated below with the dial and movement basket-weave motif decoration.

Unique PuristS "basket weave" decoration on the movement  

White gold version below with a dark anthracite colored dial.  Same movement decoration as in above RG variant.

I actually took those two movement photos, back in January.

The watch I was photographing was a prototype. Beautifully finished, but with some very slight marks on the bridges. I have no doubt that the actual auction pieces would be even more superlative.

Good luck, everybody. These are breathtaking watches.
