Introducing The Schwarz Etienne Roma Synergy By Kari Voutilainen
The Roma Synergy is a result of two significant names in the realm of high horology: Schwarz Etienne and Kari Voutilainen. It’s an association between two pioneers in particular aspects of the watch business. Kari Voutilainen has procured an authentic standing as an expert of hand-completing methods, and he additionally makes dials that feature a gathering of guilloché, plating, and different strategies. He plays with shading in a manner that unquestionably has establishes in conventional Swiss high horology, yet adds something new to the discussion. While Schwarz Etienne probably won’t be very just about as obvious as Voutilainen, it’s a force to be reckoned with in the business in the background. The company, longer than extremely old, produces bleeding edge types both for its own watches, and others, such as rising star MING .
The Roma is a staple dress watch in Schwarz Etienne’s line-up that fills in as the material for Voutilainen to apply his specialty. Measured at an unassuming 39mm, the treated steel case liberally fits under a sleeve with a tallness of 11mm. Inside is Schwarz Etienne’s type ASE 200.00, highlighting little seconds and a miniature rotor, something the producer has come to have some expertise in. The miniature rotor sits flush with the development plate, while as yet permitting an entire 86-hour power save and a dainty size.
Another fascinating part of this specific miniature rotor development that loans itself well to displaying completing is that it’s essentially just about a full-plate development, so there’s heaps of land. The miniature rotor is enlivened by Les Ateliers Kari Voutilainen, alongside snailing and jewel drops on the fastener wheel (the enormous noticeable wheel close to the miniature rotor). Furthermore, the extensions are hand inclined. Dark cleaned steel parts integrate the wrapping up. Dark cleaning is accomplished by applying precious stone glue on a tin plate and afterward, by hand, taking the part being done and scouring it on the tin plate until a mirror finish is achieved.
On the dial side, Voutilainen’s mark guilloché is on full showcase. Part of the sorcery of the plan is the manner by which different rose-motor turned examples play with one another in a manner that makes fascinating difference and profundity. The Roma Synergy comes in two dial tones: sea blue and sand dark. Each dial is blessed to receive various differentiating wraps up by hand on a rose-motor machine. A soleil (sun) design in the hour track outlines the écaille de poisson (fish scale) design that establishes the greater part of the dial with the exception of the little seconds, which is blessed to receive a vague (wave) pattern.
The Schwarz Etienne name shows up on a cartouche just underneath early afternoon, while a silver plaque at six o’clock focuses to Voutilainen’s job in the making of this piece, of which 50 models in each shading will be made.
It appeared as though there wasn’t a range longer than 30 minutes at the 2019 GPHG grants service when Kari Voutilainen wasn’t approaching the stage to catch another honor. Furthermore, the Roma Synergy is actually the sort of watch that exhibits why the community discovers his work so energizing and reviving. A mark stylish has come to characterize Voutilainen’s work; it’s a style that started when he began at Parmigiani Fleurier. He’s since developed to become a dear of the free world, clearing the honors functions. A Finn who moved to Switzerland various many years back, he’s peaceful, humble, and held face to face – he allows his work to represent him. At a lunch with him and his girl, Venla Voutilainen, a horological power in her own right, Kari revealed to me that he gets a lot of energy and fulfillment from working together with clients and different watchmakers on plans. At the point when I saw the Roma Synergy discharge, I quickly considered how energizing of a task this probably been. There’s a sure inspiration about Voutilainen that is irresistible. I presume that is essential for the appeal that has generated his religion following past his unfathomable work.
Collaborations at this level are as of now something of an uncommon event, and to see Voutilainen pair up with a producer like Schwarz Etienne is bound to rustle up a lot of interest among an unmistakable crowd. Who knows, possibly he’ll be approaching obstacle another honor for this very watch come GPHG season.
