Son of Art Skulls Collection by ArtyA & K. Hanmoi

ArtyA has announced new Son of Art Skulls timepieces created in collaboration with Korean Master Na Jeon Chil Gee & Watchmaker Kim Hanmoi.

The result is a marvellous handmade arabesque ArtyA skull in the purest Ott-Chill’s thousands of year old tradition and new kind of ArtyA skulls with gold and various colors inlays. This craftsmanship requires highly refined technical and artistic skills to handcraft mother of pearl inside a lacquered 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 lacquer used gives an antibacterial effect and perfect hydrating balance avoiding any discoloration effect with time on the mother of pearl.
