British Origins

Arnold & Son celebrates its 250 years of history by offering an exceptional model honoring both its British origins and the traditions upheld by the field of Swiss Haute Horlogerie, of which it is one of the finest ambassadors. In tribute to its founding father John Arnold, who together with his son produced the first marine chronometers to be offered in substantial quantities and at reasonable prices, the Instrument Collection DSTB beats to the tune of a new manufacture movement featuring one of the complications most closely associated with the House: deadbeat seconds.

In keeping with the original spirit of innovation, the caliber enables this fascinating mechanism to be admired on the dial side through a construction that is unique in the world. Not only does the deadbeat seconds hand perform one-second jumps for all to see, but the three gilt bridges, wheels and yoke are also clearly visible.

In a nod to marine chronographers, the latter is shaped like an anchor. Adding an ultimate touch of refinement to this exceptional creation is an extremely elegant lacquered white sub dial which displays the hours and minutes at 4 o’clock and uses clever layering to create striking 3D effects.

This timepiece is limited to 50 pieces. The watch case is made from 18 carat red gold and the watch diameter measures 43.5 mm. it is water resistant to 30 meters and comes with a hand-sewn alligator leather strap.

Founded by John Arnold in London in 1764, Arnold & Son holds a firm place in the grand English watchmaking tradition. From the outset, the company established a reputation for trailblazing innovation. In 2012, the Japanese market leader in watches acquired La Chaux-de-Fonds based Prothor Holding SA, owner of the watch brand Arnold & Son.
