SON OF SOUND, BLACK BETTY
Black PVD coated steel
Not for the faint of heart, Black Betty is dark and radical, heavy metal incarnate. With its case shaped like the headstock of a guitar, the tuning pegs play the chronograph, whilst a sweeping hour and jumping date are displayed in central apertures behind the strings.

Black Betty sees the Son of Sound Guitar model updated with a dark and radical new look. Clad in rocker-style tone-on-tone black, the watch evokes a certain musical instrument, with a dial adorned with sound holes and strings, a case shaped like a guitar’s headstock and pushers designed like tuning pegs. The latter serve on the one hand to adjust the hour and date, and on the other to control the chronograph functions.
A classic sword-shaped hand displays the minutes, while the sweeping hour is displayed in a central aperture, above a jumping date indicator. A central seconds hand marks the chronograph time. The watch features another exceptional detail in the form of decorative strings made from treated gold. In a nod to musical history, the Son of Sound Black Betty is powered by an in-house modified base movement, named Woodstock.
Yvan lives and breathes the rock and roller lifestyle in both his personal aesthetic and his approach to creativity. Seemingly channeling Gene Simmons, the Son of Sound is an expression of his love and ties to music. Having tweaked and perfected the range over several years, the patented and revolutionary guitar shaped watchcase is the fruit of three years of development alone.
