Presenting the Heaviest Watch on Earth by Artya
Okay watch enthusiasts, I have my doubts about this being a wristwatch and you won't find it on the wrist of Rafael Nadel during a tennis match - it might effect his swing just a bit, but I have to give Yvan Arpa and Christian Pauchon at ArtyA credit for crafting one of the most original "wristwatches" out there.
So I bet you must want to know the weight of this hefty horological masterpiece: 12 KILOS and a dial of concrete.
ArtyA always manages to surprise and delight the watch community with new outrageous designs and new materials. When last did you see a watch dial crafted with concrete? And always a favorite - the toad skin band.
ArtyA explains this watch as a symbol of time. Time is so fleeting - weigh it down a bit.
ArtyA has done it again - and tomorrow as you enter Basel World Palace Booth P03 - check out all the wonderful watch designs that await you and all the new concrete dial designs.
