Arnold & Son has two débutants this month: the Ultrathin Tourbillon, which has a new type of dial and a redesigned case (8·3 mm thick) and an impressive 100-hour power reserve. The dial itself sees gold powder mixed with aluminium sparkles placed on the plate, and is coloured blue for the 18 ct (5N) red gold model (SFr.73,300), and green for the platinum (Pt950) one (SFr.85,100). Inside is the A&S8300 calibre, measuring 2·7 mm thick. The watches are water-resistant to 30 m, and the company will manufacture 28 units.
The second is Arnold & Son’s Perpetual Moon 38 Eclipse I, its first watch for women. The diameter is 38 mm, housing a 30 mm A&S1612 calibre, and the case is 10·44 mm thick. Ninety hours’ power reserve has been quoted. The bezel and crown house 90 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling c. 2·72 ct (colour D-E-F, clarity IF-VVS). It is limited to 18 pieces, retailing for SFr.77,900 including taxes each. Prices are subject to change.
