Zannetti Scuba Art Piranha Mid-Size

Launched four years ago, the Piranha Scuba Art collection has succeeded to conquer the interest and the wrist of every lover of fine watchmaking technique, who don’t want to stop to the mere object, moreover represented to perfection, but demand something more, especially unique.

This is the real advantage of the Piranha, every single piece is different. It doesn’t exist and will not exist two equal pieces between them. The manual skills and the finishing touch of the dial, in fact it guarantees that every single product will be unique, inimitable, personal or even customized. The client can choose the type of manufacturing, from micro-painting to the champlevé, to enamel on mother of pearl.

When Zannetti speaks about complexity it’s because to realise a custom piece he needs, first of all, to know from the client what he has in mind to then transfer it on a handmade drawing. The following step is to adapt the drawing to the dial, considering that the central part is occupied by the hands and that generally he will need to apply at least three indexes: at 12, 6 and 9. At this point the drawing is sent to the client for approval and once satisfied with the result the job of art craft experts begins. An illustrator will draw on the dial; an engraver will engrave the base, if it’s in Corozo to imprint the subject otherwise will empty the base itself (same for the mother of pearl) to allow the application of the polychrome enamels. Then it will be time for the glazer or the micro-painter to realise the drawing. The final result is something totally original, unique and impossible to duplicate, even though many have tried.
The Piranha midsize will keep all of the specific techniques of the big brother, including the valve for the helium, with the only big difference on the diameter and on the thickness, which are both reduced. To highlight the bezel, now modular: the base stays in aluminium while the internal ring can be changed or substitute with a pavè of precious stones. The movement is mechanic-automatic, made in Switzerland to guarantee maximum reliability and precision.
