At BaselWorld this week Arnold & Son is set to showcase a new addition to its Instrument range alongside new collections that look back to key events in British history.
One British-inspired launch is the HMS Victory Set, a collection of three timepieces designed in homage to watches created by John Arnold for King George III and the royal court. The watches feature decorative hand-engraved dials.
Arnold & Son will also unveil its Time Pyramid wristwatch, a skeletonised watch with a pyramid-shaped movement that appears to float between two sapphire crystals and is inspired by the regulator clocks created by John and Roger Arnold some 200 years ago.
New to the Instrument collection is the DBS with dual-time complication. The watch has two dials side by side, one showing the local time, the other sidereal time, which is a time-keeping system astronomers use to keep track of the direction to point their telescopes to view a given star in the night sky.
