Arnold & Son 1H6AP.D06A.C60B description

Set of three timepieces;
1H6AP.D05A.C60B "Botany Bay"
1H6AP.D06A.C60B "Antarctica" (pictured)
1H6AP.D07A.C60B 'Hawaii"

Worth mentioning that these dials are 'Hand-touched up painted' - does this mean they are not fully hand painted?

Arnold & Son was a preferred supplier of marine chronometers to the Royal Navy. Thanks to their precision, the company's instruments were indispensable as a means of determining longitude reliably at sea and accompanied many a captain and explorer on their voyages of discovery.

Among them was Captain James Cook, one of the finest navigators and explorers of his era, whose three voyages to the Pacific Ocean are commemorated in glorious full-colour, hand-finished miniatures on the dials of these limited-edition (25) sets of three timepieces. The perfect traveller's watch, they feature indicators for two time zones (including half or quarter time zones), a big date display and a symmetrically ordered crown and pushpieces.
