ArtyA Son of a Gun Russian Roulette Glasnost G1

In this new model, Swiss watch brand ArtyA introduces a new Son of a Gun concept with transparency. Two genuine Flobert 6 mm bullets are fitted to the side of the case, right against the wrist. Suspended and motionless, as if neutralised in mid-air, they are inoffensive even though they have not been fired. Yvan Arpa, the creative head of ArtyA has incorporated a new technology: itr²®, standing for Innovation, Technical, Resin and Revolutionary. This composite material charged with carbon nanotubes is four times lighter than titanium.
The movement is entirely skeletonised to allow light to shine through its gearwheels, visible through both the sapphire case-back and the iconic dial structured like the barrel of a revolver. Spinning with each move of the wrist, the latter houses a real bullet evoking the fact that life is a game of Russian roulette.
