Arnold & Son 1LCAP.B04A.C111A description

Set of two timepieces;
1LCAP.W03A.C111A; black on white background (pictured)
1LCAP.B04A.C111A; white on black background

Adorning each of the two lacquer dials is a hand-finished miniature painting of two horses, one pair black and grey on white, the other white and grey against a black background. Nuances of tone and shading, from jet black to silvery grey, are achieved by the tiny brushstrokes and texturing gradually to build-up the entire image with an astonishing richness of details. The art of painting miniatures by hand calls for infinite patience and consummate skill. A skill that takes years of concentrated practice to fully master.
