Shooting the breeze with the Artya “Son of a Gun”
Artya is introducing a line of firearm-inspired pieces with their first, the Son of a Gun. I’ve got to say, it’s not something I’d necessarily look to strap on my wrist, but I understand the appeal. Just don’t try to wear it when going through security!
From their press release:

Many high-end collectors are also gun lovers, delighting in the craftsmanship and attention to detail of a high-end firearm. To celebrate this slightly strange marriage between Swiss high watchmaking and firearms, Yvan Arpa for ArtyA introduces the Son of a Gun Watch.A collector has ordered this exceptional timepiece from Yvan Arpa, creator and consultant in high watchmaking for his brand ArtyA.
To debut the collection Artya has imagined a watch containing real bullets. With a bezel and inner dial like a target sight, the piece showcases six 6mm Flobert bullets suspended in the dial almost like the barrel of a revolver. Use of copper wire like dynamite wire and the iconic 47mm wide steel case display Artya brand DNA.
