It needed to be daring! This shape embodies the upper end of an instrument’s neck, where everything is harmonized and tuned. Yvan Arpa, a rock’n’roll figure of an inventive and no-limit watchmaking, touched by street culture, is here cultivating his penchant for music. He who used to collect, on the floor of their studio, the plectrums of the band Kiss to make dials, tries here to iconize this rupturist aesthetic. And to install the ArtyA-Woodstock caliber, developed with the Concepto motor manufacturer, in this box that would make a in-caging professional sweat.
