Named the Chronomètre 27, because of the Calibre 27 it houses, is the watchmaker's second offering an observatory watch, which possess exceptional accuracy concerning all the important technical areas of movement functionality. These watches are capable of a mean accuracy of only tenths of a second per day in test conditions and in the past never generally offered for sale to the public since they were designed solely for timing trials.

With only limited pieces of around 20, Voutilainen decided to incorporate the Grosmann curve which signifies the first use of this in the twenty-first century, highlighting the fact that many older watchmaking techniques still have their place of distinction and honour in the present day.
