Two creative minds: Yvan Arpa and Bram RamonPreview BASELWORLD 2017: The Sculpted Gold Tourbillon 1/1
To give life to this one-of-a-kind creation, the respective visions of its two creators – ArtyA founder Yvan Arpa and master-engraver Bram Ramon – were once again united in revealing the finest manifestations of their art. Fired by a passion for Neo-Renaissance ornamental engraving, Bram has applied his famous ®Prismacut Art technique to this model.
After transferring the motif to the steel dial, he hollows out cavities for the platinum inlays, before sculpting and shaping achieved by means of relief gold leaf inlays hammered into the cut-outs. Once the outlines are traced, the lengthy engraving work can begin. The entire surface is then blued to highlight the contrasts of this bas-relief motif. This one-of-a-kind creation is powered by a mechanical movement exclusive to ArtyA , while revealing the fascinating rotations of its flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
