State-of-the-Art Haute Horlogerie
A new contemporary dimension in the art of watchmaking
No. 82 of 360 unique pieces

At the crossroads where the sanctified traditions of fine craftsmanship encounter the bold novelty of contemporary art and where the creative talent of the artist forges with the watchmaker’s dexterity to craft a unique masterpiece, a matchless work of art is magically born: the Artpiece 1/1, an exceptional timepiece, part of the first Artya collection of 360 unique pieces 1/1.

Obeying the artist's whim and imagination, the watchcase undergoes thermal combustion, moulding, engraving and various drastic processes that are handcrafted in the Artya workshops.

Artpiece 1/1 – 360 unique pieces
All of the Artpiece 1/1 timepieces are unique. Created by the artist, crafted by the watchmaker, these one-of-kind artistic creations are each distinctly made, none can be doubled or replaced.

Entirely manufactured and assembled by master watchmakers in Switzerland, the self-winding mechanical movement’s balance oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Endowed with incredible precision, the movement is fitted with non-circular square-shaped gears developed by Mr. Pascal Winkler, an eminent HES Professor of microtechnical engineering at the HE-Arc located in Le Locle, Switzerland.

Engraved, moulded and put through a series of severe batterings, the case is crafted in stainless steel grade 316.
Satin-finished or clad in a black PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating, the case is also available in a thermal processed version in which it undergoes an electric charge of 100,000 volts, 200,000 volts, 500,000 volts and even 1,000,000 volts.
Diameter 48 mm

Each dial is a unique work of art. Hand decorated according to 17 specific artistic techniques up to now unexploited in the watchmaking field. They combine collage, application of dyes and pigments, forging, etc.
