As always, the independent ArtyA brand never does things in half measures. Having popularised the skull in the watchmaking world, it now delivers an extreme interpretation of this motif with its Skulls & Bones model.

The entirely hand-sculpted skulls stud the watch from dial through case to bracelet. A first skull appears in the centre of the dial, with six further hand-sculpted skulls performing a macabre dance around it. Carved into the steel bezel, a series of bones, crosses, totems, guitars and pistols echo the skulls on the bezel, accentuating the three-dimensional effect.

The massive, deliberately provocative bracelet shatters convention and takes the Skulls & Bones into an unprecedented creative dimension, since there can no longer be any talk of a watch and its bracelet. The watch is the bracelet and the bracelet is the watch.

Mechanical automatic movement, oscillating weight equipped with three special 38 mm bullet cartridges, 42-hour power reserve. 316L steel 47 mm case. Silver bracelet/strap with handcrafted skulls.
