ArtyA Hand Crafted Mother of Pearl 1/1

Swiss luxury watches brand ArtyA has created a special artistic watch in collaboration with Korean Master Na Jeon Chil Gee & Watchmaker Kim Hanmoi.
This handmade arabesque ArtyA skull timepiece incorporates an ancient Korean artistic tradition known as Ott-Chil. This craftsmanship requires highly refined technical and artistic skills to handcraft mother of pearl inside a laquered dial. In Korea this technique has been recognized by the government as an intangible Korean cultural asset. It is very interesting to note that this level of quality is only possible in Korea as the laquer used gives an antibacterial effect and perfect hydrating balance avoiding any discoloration effect with time on the mother of pearl.
Yvan Arpa discovered this unique technique and their masters during his many visits to Korea while working on the latest Samsung Gear S3. Mr Kim Hanmoi owns a watch brand: Moi Watch.
