Arnold & Son 1LCAP.U02A.C110A description

The HMS1 Royal Blue from Arnold & Son is an object of beauty and a worthy new member of the Royal Collection. Our designers and watchmakers took much of their inspiration for the new timepiece from a gold- and enamel-cased half-quarter repeating watch made by John Arnold in 1775, at a time when he had already established his reputation as an outstanding watchmaker with two miniature watches made for King George III. The outer case reflects the changeover from rococo to more classical design taking place at the time and was made by Mary Reasey, whose mark "MR" was registered at Goldsmith's Hall in 1773 and appears on the case.

The present model has a rose gold case and a translucent blue lacquered guilloché dial.
