Voutilainen 28 Oukamon Hand-wound Watch

The prestigious Unryuan studio in Japan produces exquisite works in lacquer, thus perpetuating an art that has travelled through the ages to inscribe itself in the present. The studio is fiercely determined to keep alive the soul, spirit and identity of Japanese culture as expressed in the Edo period. Now a perfect union is formed between this ancestral art of Japanese lacquer and Swiss fine watchmaking in a unique creation, the symbol of harmony between Oriental and Western traditions.
