ArtyA Purity Tourbillon Chameleon

The new ArtyA Purity Tourbillon Chameleon watch incorporates an innovative Nano-Sapphire technology to change the color of the sapphire crystal case itself.

In natural light, the case has a deep blue color, but when exposed to artificial light (6500K or above), the case instantly and completely changes color to a translucent, mysterious green. This new technology has never been used before and is exclusive to ArtyA, for the Purity Tourbillon Chameleon.

Following this incredible technical breakthrough, many other Nano-Sapphire color cases for the ArtyA Purity Chameleon will be presented in 2022 in unique 1-of-1 versions, changing, for example, from red to green, yellow to orange, purple to green, and more.

The new ArtyA Nano-Sapphire watch case is an optically transparent polycrystalline material that is formed by the crystallization of glass with a unique chemical composition, and the result greater physical and chemical properties than the original glass.

This case material has incredible hardness, 7 on Mohs scale, which is much higher than glass (5 on the Mohs scale), which guarantees the durability of this incredible case material.

The ArtyA Purity Tourbillon Chameleon features a fully transparent case in order to maximize the magic and beauty of the exclusive Manufacture Flying Tourbillon movement.

As an expression of ArtyA’s horological capabilities, the Purity Tourbillon Chameleon displays a technical inventiveness that combines a maverick style with visual clarity. A beautifully balanced architectural ensemble, the manually wound caliber features an over-sized flying tourbillon with a diameter of 17mm, which is at least 50% larger than most tourbillons.

Since the ArtyA Purity Tourbillon Chameleon beats at a rate of 4 Hz, extraordinary accuracy and greater stability are achieved through a much higher frequency than many other high-end Swiss tourbillons (usually 2 or 3 Hz).

Equipped with a power-reserve of 70 hours, two barrels connected in parallel drive the movement that operates the central hour and minute functions while the indication of the seconds is elegantly displayed on the flying tourbillon that rotates 360 degrees in 60 seconds.

Mounting the barrels in parallel reduces the thickness of the spring for a more stable torque, and also improves the delta of the barrel spring curve, with an ideal ratio between power reserve, performance, and precision.

ArtyA has chosen to manufacture this timepiece with a free-sprung balance with variable inertia. This type of balance wheel represents the ultimate in innovation, guaranteeing greater reliability when subjected to shocks and during movement assembly or disassembly, achieving better chronometric results over time.

Fully transparent, the Nano-Sapphire case has nothing to hide and plenty to show. This quest for transparency takes to the extremes the skeletonizing of the movement and enhances the astonishing beauty of its intricate spirit.

Each part of the movement is delicately beveled and polished by hand. In addition, the skeletonized bridges were subjected to intensive and complete validation tests to optimize their resistance capacities.
