A few months ago, ArtyA announced the launch of its ‘Complications’ collection, focusing on three key aspects. Firstly a tourbillon made entirely either by independent master watchmakers or by ArtyA’s manufacture, SC2, located right in the centre of Geneva.
Secondly, the development of brand new complications – new not just for the brand, but also for watchmaking as a whole. And thirdly, producing work that is systematically complicated, in the noble sense of the word, featuring intricate materials and finishes. This type of creativity is a favourite preserve of ArtyA – one which turns out to be equally if not more delicate than some purely mechanical developments.
The Chrono Tourbillon Monopusher Full Engraved is all of this at once – and more besides. Right from the first glance, the aesthetic appearance of the watch is an attention-grabber, with a dizzying succession of circular shapes. The oval movement is housed in ArtyA’s master worked case, entirely hand engraved with 24cts gold inlay, made by our favourite master engraver: Bram Ramon. In its turn, the oval-shaped movement within the case holds the perfect circles of the chronograph and tourbillon counters.
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.
