ArtyA Complications – Son of Sound Tourbillon

ArtyA unveiled Son of Sound Tourbillon, first unique piece in ArtyA Complications, its first ever collection of complications. Son of Sound Tourbillon features a tourbillon that’s 100% Made In Geneva – and exclusive to ArtyA – and it is the first in a series of ten unique pieces, to showcase engraving, wood, set jewels, and more.

The starting-point for the ArtyA’s new Complications collection is its in-house tourbillon, already found in many of the brand’s models. Reliable and modular, it will become available for pieces from within certain existing series, which will then feature in the new Complications collection. Son of Sound, the legendary, patented guitar watch by ArtyA, is the first timepiece to be joining this new family.

“We’ve always made complications, ranging from Minute Repeaters to Perpetual Calendars,” explains ArtyA’s CEO Yvan Arpa, “but what we’re preparing to unveil in the coming months will surpass everything we’ve done so far – and so calls for a dedicated collection.”

The Son of Sound Tourbillon retains its unique aesthetic signature – a guitar-shaped case, patented by ArtyA. At six o’clock, this version features a flying tourbillon displaying the passing seconds. This is the work of MHC, Manufacture d’Horlogerie Contemporaine. Opposite it, at twelve, is the barrel, with a fully redesigned bridge. The assembly is housed in a fully open-work X-shaped structure, inspired by the X-bracing used to support guitar bodies.

This structure houses the entire movement, allowing the Son of Sound Tourbillon to be hollowed out between each arm of the X. The watch is therefore literally transfused with light, revealing all the intricate details of its polished and satin finishes, and blending subtle shades of grey.
