In Western countries, already in the Middle Ages, new forms of art, other than traditional ones, began to be considered: painting, sculpture, architecture.
Once abolished the ancient schemes, the artwork connected itself together with the concept of artistic creation seen as intellectual activity and created the discipline of artistic crafts.
Once removed, any difference between goldsmiths, miniature, engraving, chisel, became equally considered and authentic forms of art.
This is why Zannetti decided to let their artists’ creativity express freely with the Art Collection.
Whether in a steel case, or in gold (under request), the timepieces become little pieces of art: cameos in blue agate playing around chromatic divergences and three-dimensional surfaces.
The end result is an authentic and unique piece, since no dial is ever perfectly similar to another.
