Swiss luxury watch maker ArtyA has started getting into the Halloween spirit well ahead of time. Once again, the Geneva brand has pulled off another coup, with an all-new model. And this time, following a spate of copycats, the firm has decided to register the motif as a trademark.
This latest creation is an all-new – and copyrighted – skull, encompassing the arabesques so synonymous with ArtyA’s identity, as seen most recently on the titanium Tourbillon Arabesque.
The piece depicts a skull: complete with teeth engraved with the ArtyA name, sporting sunglasses, and draped with arabesques and rinceauxin a nod to rifle butt decorations from back when the Wild West was won. The imposing baroque timepiece is housed in a 47 mm case, the bezel covered with engraved motifs that characterize this universe: revolvers, skulls, barbed wire, crosses, and more. ArtyA has chosen its Dance of Skulls strap to bear the watch – it too is a wholly original creation, featuring a series of jointed skulls, as its name suggests.
The dial is emblazoned with an exciting new colour, in sandy hues, made from a specific silver alloy and redolent with hints of grey, gold and silver. This watch is a unique piece 1/1 and retails for 11’900 CHF on a leather strap and 15’900 CHF on a skull handmade strap.
