Artya For One Of A Kind Luxury Art Watch Creations
It has to do with Arpa's vision for how the watches are made. Instead of making totally unique cases in the manufacturing process, Artya creates unique cases more organically. The workshop's process involves a tesla coil. Making artificial lightning that "tortures" the watches. The result is mostly cases that are too destroyed, but in the experimentation comes pieces that are interesting in style and suitable for the necessary level of water resistance.

Arpa imbues the brand with other interesting components. Two of which can be seen here. First is the rear of their automatic mechanical watches that reveal and interesting square gear. This seemingly impossible component is linked to the automatic rotor and spins around the rear of the watch. Another interesting material is the strap on the above tourbillon watch. What is it? I couldn't guess at first. Yvan informed me that it was toad skin. Imagine that? Works with the style well doesn't it? Also, when you get the watches my understanding is that they come with a frame for wall mounting them.
Yvan's dedication to his new brand is unparalleled and it is more than a instant project for him. I look forward to seeing all the interesting things that come out of it. If you are interested in learning more about these intentionally crazy watches, just visit Artya's website here.
