The gold bezel and lateral inserts of the ArtyA Son of Earth Gold Tobacco are intricately hand engraved by one of the most talented engraver of the world Bram Ramon, creating a look that is truly unconventional

It frames an even more unconventional dial, which is fully clad in genuine tobacco leaves delicately hand “dialized” by artist Dominique Arpa-Cirpka. “Working with living materials is always a challenge,” explains Yvan Arpa. “We had to stabilize the material to make it as lively and expressive as possible, whilst ensuring it would stand the test of time.
