Capturing the beauty of nature and subtly distilling it in a delicate miniature painting : such is the challenge to which the artist Dominique Arpa-Cirpka has been rising for many years on behalf of ArtyA. Thus, when she successfully encapsulates the hypnotic colors and light effects of butterfly wings, a spectacular tableau unfurls and lights up the wrist. The ArtyA Butterfly Set Tourbillon 1/1 has been designed to shine in more than one way. Delicate gold leaves reflect both the iridescent shimmer of the dainty insect’s wings and the lateral inserts in ArtyOr, the exclusive propriety alloy featured on the sides of the case. The majestic tourbillon spinning inside its mechanical heart echo the fragile canvas surrounding it, while a setting of Top Wesselton diamonds totaling 3.5 carats sets the final luminous touch to this totally unique creation.

The dial of the ArtyA Son of Sea – Capri Collection is just as unique, this time carrying us away to the depths of the oceans. To represent the submerged magnificence of these splendid underwater expanses, the artist has brought together on her horological canvas algae and natural pigments, along with fish scales and gold leaves further enhanced by a few butterfly wings. A subtle and fragile vision of a fabulous world where imagination reigns supreme. Like the creations and the incomparable style of ArtyA which, as usual, pushes its limits to the delight of brand aficionados.
