ArtyA Golden Dragon Tourbillon 1/1

Yvan Arpa, CEO of ArtyA presents Golden Dragon Tourbillon, a unique, artistic high horology marvel created in association with master-engraver Bram Ramon.

Like in most of his creations Bram went for Neo-Renaissance ornaments a northern European style which dates back to the 19th century with his personal touch. Once transferred the drawing to the dial the actual engraving can start, first the background is cut away deep and clean, then the 3d sculpting ore carving begins one of the most difficult and time consuming techniques known in the world of high-end hand engraving all executed under a stereo microscope.
For the dragon the duo took a flat piece of solid gold cut it out and completely carved out the dragon with small chisels then he inlays the dragon in the ornamental frame to complete the dial. The bezel also is fully sculpted by hand and here the background is inlayed with 24K gold.
