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.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
