ArtyA Race is the rebellious Swiss watch maker’s first timepiece to draw inspiration from the world of NASCAR auto racing, the legendary contest that began in the 1950s in the United States. Responding to popular demand on the part of its clients with a keen interest in the sport, ArtyA has produced various limited editions of 99 watches. Now the brand unveils a new version, the Race Blue BBS.
With a diameter of 44.5 mm, ArtyA Race Blue BBS echoes the style of ArtyA’s mythical Russian Roulette in blue highlights with the addition of an aluminium rim above the carbon fibre dial. The piece even allows itself the luxury of a world first: the time is only visible when the watch is moving, thanks to the optical effect of transparency when the rim is spinning at full speed.
To the rear, the Race Blue BBS celebrates the birth of a brand new oscillating weight. This sports a carbon fiber tachometer, complete with a needle in the middle and markers engraved directly onto the sapphire back. The assembly is free to rotate, in a striking mirror image of the animation on the dial side. Lateral inserts in fiber carbon.
