ArtyA - Cumbere Tourbillon & Son of Sound Magic Black Tourbillon

As a preview of its Baselworld 2016 novelties, Swiss luxury watch brand ArtyA seduces the luxury watch connoisseurs with two stunning high horology masterpieces: the Cumbere Tourbillon & the Son of Sound Magic Black Tourbillon.

Designed by Yvan Arpa and engineered by MHC, Manufacture d’Horlogerie Contemporaine, the two new Son of Sound Tourbillon timepieces retain their unique aesthetic signature – a guitar-shaped case, patented by ArtyA. At six o’clock, these versions feature a flying tourbillon displaying the passing seconds.
Opposite it, at twelve, is the barrel, with a fully redesigned bridge. The assembly is housed in a fully open-work X-shaped structure, inspired by the X-bracing used to support guitar bodies.

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, black and ArtyOr.
