usually ammunitions and time pieces don’t mix but then, that was before Son of a Gun, an one-off time piece created by Yvan Artya came to light. within its 47-mm steel case, is a Swiss automatic movement with a crosshair engraved on it and surrounded by six tiny Flobert 6-mm rounds that seems to be tangle in a mess of copper wires. on its back, the rotor of the automatic movement is decorated by three 38-mm bullet cartridges’ base, which can be clearly seen through its clear case-back. at a glance, the three 38-mm cartridges do remind us of a revolver, albeit being two or three shots lesser. this is one time piece that’s certain to get people talking but unfortunately, like many Artya watches, this is yet another one-off make. yes, it is indeed unfortunate. wouldn’t it be nice to hear “are those bullets stuck inside your watch?” perhaps, taking it as an art will ease your desire for one a little but do keep an eye for more of such concept from Artya, as the company has promised that “there will be more watches with bullets and other gun parts.” catch a couple more look after the break.
