Swiss luxury watch maker ArtyA welcomes the Halloween festival by presenting Hypogeum, a provocatively designed watch incorporating the skull motif and the design theme of the brand’s popular Son of Gun series watches.
With the ArtyA Hypogeum, ArtyA has embarked once again on the style trajectory it was the first to pioneer as ArtyA’s CEO and designer Yvan Arpa guides the concept to what must surely be its ultimate destination. The Skull universe created by the brand has been extended here to include the entire watch, from the case to the strap. The skull is much more than a simple drawing: sculpted and engraved, it’s been released from the two-dimensional representations to which it’s been confined elsewhere.
This is surrounded by 11 hand-engraved skulls in polished steel outlined in black. The style is at once tribal and urban, modern and ancestral. ArtyA leaves the interpretation of this universal symbol to each individual’s imagination. By definition, each timepiece will be unique, with each person free to have their own take on the skull universe.
The most striking new aspect of the ArtyA Hypogeum is probably its strap. Here too, no other brand has yet taken the concept to its limits, expanding the Skull universe well beyond the case. The chunky, deliberately provocative design of the “full skull” strap is a ground-breaking step in watchmaking.
