Volna and Yvan Arpa - Amazing Volnatomic Liquid Tourbillon Watch

Apr 21, 2010
Volna and Yvan Arpa have joined efforts to create an exceptional, rebellious and daring watch, a true technical feat - the Volnatomic Liquid Tourbillon.

The new Volna watch stands out from the crowd due to its movement design suggested by the interior of ballistic missile nuclear submarines. The most unusual thing about the movement is that it contains a liquid element.

The mechanical hand-wound movement demonstrates cut-out bridges with sandblasted, hand-bevelled finishing, a honeycomb structure and an atomic reactor represented by a tourbillon carriage with the shape of an atomic propeller. At 8 and 10 oclock, the glance is caught by two tanks embedded into the mainplate of the movement. The tanks are filled with a blue-colored fluid, also visible through a sapphire crystal on the side of the timepiece.

When you wind the watch or set the time, the crown activates the pictogram and the arrow as though warning about danger and the need to escape.

A number of movement parts are colored in yellow with superluminova pigments, also found in the immersed central tube of every tank to make one think of uranium storage pools.
In the darkness, the owner of the watch will witness a breathtaking luminescent show, as it demonstrates a crime scene, emergency exit and radiation danger signs mingling all at once.

The 19-jewel movement operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour and provides an advantage of a 72-hour power reserve.

The 46.5mm case of the Volna Volnatomic watch is crafted in titanium provided with black PVD coating. The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

The time is indicated by yellow hour and minute hands, also with Superluminova pigments. The dial is protected by a 2.5mm thick spherical sapphire crystal, glareproofed on both sides.

The Volna Volnatomic Liquid Tourbillon watch is presented on a genuine rubber strap featuring yellow hand-stitching and fitted with a black PVD-coated double pin buckle. The amazing watch will be available in a limited number of just 10 pieces.
