Arnold & Son’s Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36

The La Chaux-de-Fonds watchmaker has been around since 1764 and has some serious pedigree behind it. Founder John Arnold’s son even worked with Abraham-Louis Breguet in the eighteenth century – the latter remains to this day one of the ten most important people to have contributed to the development of mechanical watchmaking. Breguet’s skill has arguably influenced and guided Arnold & Son through the centuries and still influences its watchmaking know-how even today.

This new Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36 is a tribute to some of the earliest chronometers that John Arnold created for the British government in the eighteenth century. The 46mm rose gold case frames the dial that displays the intricate mechanics of the watch including the tourbillon, barrels and going train. As a COSC-certified chronometer – only two per cent of all Swiss watches made annually receive this certification – it’s an ultra-accurate timepiece too. Where do we sign?
