the unconventional raw materials it uses

Ceo and creator of artya
”At first glance, this project might seem a bit like a provocation but in fact, it is truly a gesture of gratitude, a homage
to long-standing Swiss watchmaking tradition. One’s heritage evolves through time, as it must, and tradition loses
its meaning when it no longer moves forward. It’s important to continue to innovate, and to build something new
for the next torchbearers.
