This Halloween, Swiss watch brand ArtyA presents the Spider watch that contains the corpse of a real spider. Eerily displayed in the dial, this taboo concept is brought to life (and death) by the imaginative Yvan Arpa. The fearsome collection of Halloween Watches follows with dials thrusting blood, skulls, and screaming faces.
Each Artya Halloween watch is subjected to the same lighting deformation before being prepared for construction and dial design. Each Artya piece unique is a luxury quality and Swiss-made with the heart of a watchmaker and the spirit of an artist. Only unique pieces 1/1.
Entirely manufactured and assembled by master watchmakers in Switzerland, the self-winding mechanical movement’s balance oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Engraved, moulded and put through a series of severe batterings, the case is crafted in stainless steel grade 316.
Satin-finished or clad in a black PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating, the case is also available in a thermal processed version in which it undergoes an electric charge of 100,000 volts, 200,000 volts, 500,000 volts and even 1,000,000 volts.
Water-resistant up to 50 meters
Each dial is a unique work of art. Hand decorated according to 17 specific artistic techniques up to now unexploited in the watchmaking field. They combine collage, application of dyes and pigments, forging, etc…
The hand-sewn strap is made of high-tech rubber combined with processed “Alzavel waterproof” calfskin or with “Crazy frog” tanned toad skin.
