HIGHLY COMMENDED: Showstopper of the Year, Arnold & Son Royal Collection Nebula


Part of Arnold & Son’s Royal Collection, the Nebula timepiece has been so called because its bridges radiate from the perimeter of the dial toward the centre, its sculptural movement looks like an inverted, exploded star.

The watch has a three-dimensional, openwork movement and dial, offering a view into the heart of the in-house manufacture calibre.

Two mainspring barrels, providing a healthy 90 hours power reserve, are seen in symmetry with the small seconds display at seven and five o’clock.

The dial is formed of 10 movement bridges compared to the standard four and highly legible central hours and minutes rotate above the movement that was developed to be open with the most technically interesting and animated mechanisms, including the barrels, gear train, balance and escapement, and winding mechanism visible from the front.

The Nebula is available in a 41.5mm red gold or stainless steel case, with a sapphire crystal display back.
