ArtyA, the Geneva brand specialized in the manufacturing of horological sensations and singularly disruptive creations, launches “ArtyA Complications”, its first ever collection of complications. The Son of Sound Tourbillon is the first unique piece in this new collection. This elegant timepiece features a tourbillon that’s 100% Made in Geneva – and exclusive to ArtyA. First in a series of ten unique pieces, it will showcase engraving, wood, set jewels, and more.
ArtyA has already hinted at the shape of things to come with a few unique watches. The most recent of these, the Arabesque Tourbillon, demonstrates how ArtyA canstep out of the conventional box of mechanical complications, and extrapolate the idea to an artistic complication. The Arabesque Tourbillon was a world first: a case completely engraved in Grade 5 Titanium, set within a second, unique gold-leaf piece.
The starting-point for the ArtyA’s new Complications collection is its in-house tourbillon, already found in many of the brand’s models. Reliable and modular, it will become available for pieces from within certain existing series, which will then feature in the new Complications collection. Son of Sound, the legendary, patented guitar watch by ArtyA, is the first timepiece to be joining this new family.
This structure houses the entire movement, allowing the Son of Sound Tourbillon to be hollowed out between each arm of the X. The watch is therefore literally transfused with light, revealing all the intricate details of its polished and satin finishes, and blending subtle shades of grey.
