Arnold & Son 1LCAP.S10A.C110A description
The Royal Collection from Arnold & Son consciously references the magnificent timepieces made by John Arnold in his fledgling years as a watchmaker for King George III and members of the monarch's court. The timepieces were distinguished by their elaborate decoration, intricate workmanship and ingenious mechanical sophistication. To complement the collection, Arnold & Son is proud to unveil two beautiful new models that sit firmly within the inimitable English watchmaking tradition.
Both of the new timepieces feature gorgeous, silvery-white guilloché dials in two distinct patterns. These combine with the indices, starkly three-dimensional hands, and recessed subdial to create a spectacular illusion of depth that is in sharp contrast to the ultra-slim case. Housed inside the case is an in-house A&S1001 nickel silver movement, just 2.7 mm in height and decorated with Côtes de Genève rayonnantes - a particularly apt choice of ornamentation because the iridescent reflections mirror those of the dial. The rhodium treated calibre is meticulously fashioned, featuring Haute Horlogerie finishing and manually chamfered bridges with polished edges as well as blued screws and fine circular graining. Secured by a brown or black alligator strap, the two new HMS1 references are available in 18-carat rose gold and 18-carat white gold, and are also available with a diamond-set bezel.
The present model has a rose gold case and a sivlery-white guilloché dial.
