ArtyA NanoSapphire Bicolor

After years of research and development, Swiss luxury watch brand ArtyA presents a new world first: Timepieces with NanoSapphire cases that are entirely two-tone in the mass.

To achieve this ArtyA has used a high temperature multi-component combination of two main oxides – SiO2 and Al2O3. These oxides are key components of most natural gemstones. A temperature of 1700°C (compared to 700°C for glass) is required to synthesize this material.

ArtyA was able to adapt this technology to create an extremely hard and difficult to machine homogeneous material specifically optimized for watchmaking and thus became since 2017 the first company in the world to use it in a watch case in addition to our pure sapphire collections.

NanoSapphire has an incredible hardness, 7 on the Mohs scale, which is much higher than glass (5 on the Mohs scale), this guarantees the durability of this beautiful material that plays with light.

The watches are available in 39, 41 and 46 mm case versions. This innovative world first is available in several of the brand’s iconic collections.

Son of Earth

These watches don’t simply reproduce the design, style and colour of a butterfly. Under the strict control of the relevant authorities, and with their full consent, artist D. Arpa-Cirpka successfully incorporated genuine butterfly wings, tobacco leaves, natural pigments, gold leaves, and many other natural elements into the dial to create ever more unique art pieces.
