Arnold & Son, the prestigious manufacturer of luxury chronographs presents its Royal Tec1 wristband watch, inspired by the iconic watches created for King George III.
This model stands out for its minimalist design, which emphasizes the exposed tourbillon —visible through an aperture between 10 and 2 o’clock—which confers a superb three-dimensional effect to the piece. In the lower part, a 30-minute chronograph, strategically located at 6 o’clock hangs in perfect, harmonious balance.
The noble materials used to make the A&S 8305 include solid gold hands, fancy blue screws, complete hand-chamfered bridges with Côtes de Genève rayonnants and satin-finished chronograph levers, as well as a sophisticated mechanism with 255 parts and 30 jewels, all visible through the sapphire crystal case that covers both the front and the back.
The Royal TEC1 from Arnold & Son comes in three versions, a limited edition model featuring an 18k red gold case with blue lacquer guilloche for approximately $99,000. The other two versions have similar designs and finishes, but different materials: the most luxurious features a fossilized charcoal or anthracite dial in the same 18k red gold case, and the more modest comes in a more subdued palladium case with silver dial and white second hand. ■
