The Son of Sound collection
Featuring an impressive watchcase, never seen before: A guitar-head shaped case, dreamed up by Yvan Arpa during a jam session with his friends. This vision was a real challenge to manufacture in Geneva. The different finishes – polished, satined, microbillé mixed together give a genuine swing to the lines of the case. The chronograph movement, called Woodstock, is made by Concepto and SC2.
The 4 active pushers inspired by guitar « tuning pegs » have the following functions: start/stop (chronograph), reset (chronograph), hours change, date change. The strings on the dial are hand-stretched and fully made of gold. Only very noble materials were used for the different elements of the dial.
Some of the base of dials, such as the UK model, are made of wood marquetry.
