Arnold & Son Time Pyramid Guilloché
Inspired by the regulators created by John and Roger Arnold over two hundred years ago, and by antique British skeleton clocks, the new Arnold & Son exclusive mechanical Calibre A&S1615 was conceived of, designed and developed in-house at the company’s La Chaux-de-Fonds workshops, Switzerland.
To reflect the spirit of the brand’s rich history, yet with a vigilant eye to the future, Arnold & Son has created a highly cohesive and seductive blend of watchmaking feats in this timepiece that includes regulator, skeleton, vertical linear movement, pyramid-placement of components and multi-dimensional depth. The Time Pyramid is part of the Instrument Collection, wherein timepieces are easily identified by their sophisticated dial designs, off-centered hours and minutes indication and visual display of complexities.
Arnold & Son has given its signature skeleton watch a solid gold guilloche case back that forms a decorative backdrop for the unusual pyramid-shaped movement.
This Time Pyramid follows the original regulators from the brand with its component positioning and detailed 3D visual appeal. Movement parts and watch indications are built on three levels, with the subsidiary seconds dial on the bottom, the hour indications on a sapphire crystal dial in the middle level, and a silver top ring for the minutes indication. While the movement is extremely thin – at just 4.4 mm – the multiple levels bring amazing depth and detail to the watch. To further enhance the balance and symmetry of the Time Pyramid, the crown (with Arnold & Son’s engraved logo) is artfully positioned at six o’clock.
