The case here is in steel, in Artya’s standard case that I believe is 45mm wide. There will also be versions in PVD black steel as well as in rose gold. The dial is actually quite minimalist for Artya – who applies their decorative style sparingly. You really only see “Artya” in the hands (of which there are six). The focus is on the movement which is the Caliber MHO138 (more details below). The perpetual calendar movement is manually wound with 66 hours of power reserve. It has the time, date, day, and month. Reading the indicators is done by the hands – but they don’t move. You read where the hands are pointing, as the discs under them move. It is an interesting rendition on the skeletonized dial concept and feels in-line with Artya’s “organic aesthetic.” Also worth mentioning is that the movement uses silicum for in the escapement – which itself is said to be modeled after a system invented by watch maker Martin Braun.

The first thing I noticed about the watch was the bezel. According to Artya’s Yvan Apra, the bezel was influenced by the art and style of Stargate – which is essentially futuristic ancient Egyptian. Aside from looking really cool,watches-replica.org.uk/hublot-c-29.htmlHublot Watches, the engraved design includes hieroglyphics that actually say something (though I am not sure what). The motto of the watch is actually very ancient Egyptian in theme and is “Vita brevis,watches-replica.org.uk/dior-c-79.htmlDior Watches, ars longa.” Thank you Artya for helping to keep my knowledge of Latin fresh – that means “life is short, but art is eternal.” We all need things to leave behind for the world to remember us by right?
