Swiss luxury watch brand ArtyA unveils three new exceptional horology creations by taking on a prevailing trend in watchmaking aesthetics – the skeleton watch – and giving it the full ArtyA treatment. The result goes by the name of Shams, meaning “Sun” in Arabic.
The aim of a skeleton is to reveal the movement, workings and mechanical beauty in all their glory. But that requires light. What better source of light could there be than the one that has given us life – the sun? Once again, ArtyA reconciles extremes and opens up a new creative path, combining a movement clad in the absolute minimum with all the warmth of a life-giving heavenly body.
There are three versions on offer, all in exclusively limited editions of 99 pieces. They share the same 44mm steel case, as well as a Swiss Made movement with a 52-hour power reserve. The skeleton – the watch’s main feature – varies depending on the different models, each with a different PVD treatment. There’s a full-colour version, along with a black/steel version and a gold/steel version. They all have one thing in common – ArtyA’s secret signature on the jumper, a letter “A” formed by the lines of the skeleton itself.
This type of finish allows ArtyA to present a wide choice of colours, satisfying every possible whim of gentlemen and ladies alike. The unique offer thus provides a limited-edition, numbered watch in any choice of finish for just CHF 4,400.
