The artistically rendered Zannetti Dive Watch

This new watch from Zannetti — the Piranha watch — is another piece of watch that tries to incorporate art into horology. Some people, especially on professional watches, would be appalled by the mashing of art (no practical utility to them) into tool watches.

However, a very large proportion of watch collectors are not strictly tradesmen with the burning desire to have a practical tool watch that is required for their career.

For me, I love the though of a dial graphic such as a Piranha on my watch. The engraved bone dial of this watch features a hand-painted enamel piranha. The limited edition timepiece is water resistant to 550 meters, features a steel case with automatic helium release valve and unidirectional bezel. It is equipped with a seaworthy rubber strap.

If its pleasing to my eyes, it is good enough for me.
