Artya Creates "Son of a Gun" for Ultimate Watch Protection Action
However Artya has decided on more direct approach to watch protection with the "Son of a Gun" timepiece. Weapon enthusiasts will undoubtedly find this watch shooting to the top of their "must have" list. Merging weapons and horology is a unique idea, although not so far removed as to make the entire concept astounding, after all shooting and hitting a target is all about precision and perfect timing.
The watch bezel and dial resemble a target with carved notches at the 12, 9, 6 and 3 'o' clock position. The dial is comprised of six 6mm bullets, which the designer connected using copper wire in a dynamite formation with more copper wire running along the skeletonized ultra sharp watch hands. My suggestion - don't try bring this watch on a plane- you might have some explaining to do.
The dial of the "Son of a Gun" is protected by high quality sapphire crystal with a water resistance of 50 meters. A sapphire crystal case back reveals the rotor balanced by the backs of 38 mm bullets. I got to say this is one cool watch.
If you want a unique timepiece you've always got Artya.
