ArtyA Moorish Chrono Tourbillon Monopusher 1/1

This year, a new masterpiece – the Moorish Chrono Tourbillon Monopusher 1/1- joins ArtyA’s Complications collection. Completed made in Geneva, this tourbillon wristwatch features an extra-large calendar on the rear of the watch.

The Moorish Chrono Tourbillon Monopusher is an attention-grabber, with a dizzying succession of circular shapes.  The oval movement is housed in ArtyA’s master worked case, hand-made engraved, and PVD treated bezel with 24cts gold inlay, made by master engraver Bram Ramon. The movement features inserts made from the ArtyOr ally – exclusive to ArtyA, consisting of gold and legendary bullet cartridges.  In its turn, the oval-shaped movement within the case holds the perfect circles of the chronograph and tourbillon counters.
On the dial side, the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph showcases goldsmiths’ craftsmanship. The skeletonization is painstakingly cut out around each bridge and counter, featuring alternating shades of grey, and satin and polished finishes. The piece has symmetrical 30-minute and 60-second counters to the left and right respectively, whilst leaving plenty of room for the other components within this mechanical composition with a difference: the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, column wheel at 12 o’clock, and power reserve at 9 o’clock. The power reserve lasts a very generous five days.
On the rear side: an extra-large Calendar with a centrally positioned hand. This is a first for ArtyA – and probably for watchmaking as a whole. Like a conspiratorial wink, reserved for the owner of this unique timepiece alone, the extra-large Calendar is a genuine complication developed especially for the Tourbillon Monopusher Chronograph.
