Hello Amanico

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-15:50
There’s a seven page article featuring this watch in EuropaStar magazine And it’s on the cover! I love the dial, it’s the hit of the show but there’s also a new movement behind the dial, it’s Kari‘s 20th anniversary watch…Jim


 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-17:05
I believe photographs may miss characterize the effect the dial may have on this watch, somewhat like when I bought my PP 5740, everybody thought the date being on the dial was a killer but of course history has proven that wrong. if you read the entire a... 

I have to agree. (nt)

True. (nt)

I would love that.

Anybody can have an enrmal world map on the dial, this particular dial took several months to make by a famous Japanese artist, I don’t really think you can compare the two… We are all entitled to our opinions…Jim

"We are all entitled to our opinions..." well said, I wrote "Enamel world map would be interesting", you wrote "anyone can have an enamel world map on the dial"

I would like to share this with you www.watchprosite.com www.watchprosite.com www.watchprosite.com I am a huge fan of Japanese Maki-E, Urushi Lacquer ware and art myself and realize how intricate and delicate the art is. S

Famous Japanese artist or not

I just find this watch not attractive at all. And in general, I admire Kari's work tremendously. GEO

Love It!

The future of horology are the talented people and independents over the Big Houses, would you agree?

Yes I would agree enjoythemusic!

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-17:12
Your handle tells me we would be thinking alike. A world renowned independent watchmaker, his soulmate from Japan, a world renowned artist, a new movement that does everything from the crown and is more efficient is what I call horology… Jim

Yep, I agree.

Love his work

This dial is not my style. Very well executed, just personal preference.

Variety is what makes the world go round.

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-17:13
Variety is what makes the world go round. I would recommend you read the article… Jim

I did!

 By: TeutonicCarFan : June 22nd, 2022-17:33
Highest of craftsmanship. I still don't find it to my visual taste, but that doesn't mean it isn't unqiue, masterful, artistry. I am sure all sold, whether because collectors find it appealing, they just want anything KV, they just want the collaboration,... 

Very well said.

 By: amanico : June 22nd, 2022-17:34

oh I LOVE it!

I like the new movement

 By: Cozmopak : June 22nd, 2022-17:03

Hi Cozmopak, The new movement is pretty special!

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-17:22
It is based on the original V8 but it’s thinner, more efficient and more accurate. To have a world timer with everything working from the crown makes this watch simple but beautiful on both sides… Jim


 By: Cozmopak : June 22nd, 2022-22:00
I have a very special watch ordered with this movement

I know Kari also has a new reverse movement

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 23rd, 2022-08:05
I know Kari also has a new reverse movement That will be better than the first one, he is really working hard and has many young people under his wing. His workshop and organization are very impressive… Jim


 By: Cozmopak : June 23rd, 2022-16:23
I’m excited

Hi Patrick thank you for your comments…

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-18:10
They are all beautiful Watches, the difference to me is Patek makes about 80,000 Watches a year, Kari makes 70! I believe this is only the third watch he’s done with his famous Japanese artist, to me that makes it very very special, It’s a unique piece fi... 

Kari definitely makes tremendous pieces!

 By: patrick_y : June 22nd, 2022-18:54
Definitely a very special timepiece!

Looks amazing.

 By: Watchonthewrist : June 22nd, 2022-18:04
I would also pref a bit more simpler dial like Amanico said . But overall a gorgeous KV

Thank you watchonthewrist, Dial is anything but simple :-)

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-18:11
Dial is anything but simple . I like bright colors… Jim

rip9er, In the magazine article there is a video

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-18:13
That shows you the myriad of colors and looks the dial has when you just move it around a little bit, it’s an absolutely impressive piece of art, thank you for your reply and comments… Jim

Interesting article

 By: cazalea : June 22nd, 2022-18:43
It describes the two men, their backgrounds and superlative achievements and the appearance of the watch, but not how it actually works... I'm always baffled by the world timer's actual functionality. Cazalea

Hi Cazallea, I am with you with this complication

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-21:10
Honestly world timers don’t work all that well considering there’s many other time zones besides 24, for instance Vashron Constantine Has 36 times zones on the world timer. It’s hard to read and you have to turn your head upside down to see some of the ci... 

I wonder how many painstaking hours it took

 By: Centurionone : June 22nd, 2022-19:30
Tatsuo Kitamura to paint that dial! It’s marvellous

Hi Centuironnone

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-21:12
The article says it took several months to do the dial and it is a painstaking artful process, truly one of a kind… Jim

Hi Matto1, I haven’t seen it in person but the video

 By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 23rd, 2022-08:09
I haven’t seen it in person but the video I saw was very impressive. Thank you for your comments… Jim
