Artya Sculpted Gold Tourbillon 1/1

This high horology creation was born out of a partnership between Yvan Arpa CEO of ArtyA and Master-Engraver Bram Ramon.

For this new creation, the materials are steel, pure gold and pure platinum. In creating this masterpiece, Bram first started with his neo renaissance ornament design, transferring it to the steel dial. He then made the cavities and undercuts for the platinum inlays. After this, Bram made the undercuts for the relief gold inlay, which sits higher than the dial. Once the thick sheets of gold are hammered into the undercuts, the outlines are traced and the long work of sculpting& shaping can begin. This ancient technique is now pushed to the next level, as this is all executed under a high quality, stereo microscope with a magnification of x20, so every detail can be finished the way it should be. After finishing the dial the bluing can begin. The contrast between the gold, platinum and the blued steel gives the sculpted gold even more dimension and the bass relief really comes to life.
The movement powering this incredible timepiece is the in-house ArtyA flying tourbillon, and a great deal of work has been done to make it truly unique. The case – here, a traditional round ‘Classique’ shape –44mm.

The case features the side inserts that have become ArtyA’s aesthetic hallmark, here made in fiber carbon. On the back of the flying tourbillon movement, Côte de Genève and perlage finishing is mixed, with skeletonized back bridges which allows light to go through the tourbillon cage.
