The ARPIEM Tribute is a "sport" chronograph, vintage, classy and elegant. The passion for mechanical sports of its creator is linked above all to emotions: sounds, shapes, smells and colors. These are the emotions he wanted to transcribe in the ARPIEM Tribute.


The TDFV salutes the memory of F1's most famous engine, the Ford Cosworth DFV. Introduced in 1967 first by Lotus (you should know that the width of the engine was imposed by Colin Chapman, the creator of Lotus Cars, to have the same width as the pelvis of its pilot Jim Clark!) It has demonstrated, under numerous versions and evolutions, of an incredible longevity until… 1983. Its track record, with 155 victories and 22 won pilot and constructor titles, is exceptional. This engine marked the decade of the 70s in F1.

The metallic dial of the TDFV refers to the engine alloy. The back of the watch is engraved with the cutaway engine with its characteristic “ V ".


Arpiem has developed a short design / manufacturing / distribution circuit, in order to provide the right quality at the best price.


The choices are always those of  affordable quality: proven and recognized Swiss or Japanese movements, the use of surgical-grade 316L steel for the cases, crystal-quality sapphire glass with anti-reflection treatment, DLC treatment ( Diamond Like Carbon) for black cases rather than the less resistant PVD treatment, the use of stainless steel deployment buckles for the straps, original and rewarding packaging.

Arpiem watches are revealed in the details of their design: the use of the "triple layer" dial, the presence of a colored button, the discreet engraving of the central button, the elements highlighted on the dials which participate in the story associated with each model.
