    Arnold & Son Eight-Day Royal Navy Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    While it isn’t glitzed up with new technology or a fancy story, the new Arnold & Son Eight-Day Royal Navy is most certainly a sleeper hit of Baselworld 2016 with an attractive dial, good-looking and useful movement, and all-around decent price in three new steel-case models. Arnold & Son isn’t shy about saying that the […]

    Arnold & Son Time Pyramid Translucent Back Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    Would you like for me to remind you what the biggest issue is on watches with fully skeletonized dials and movements? It is that you can often see right through to your own skin and arm hair. Yes, those sexy-looking timepieces with skeletonized movements and dials can seem amazing in theory (and pictured alone), but […]

    Arnold & Son UTTE Skeleton Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    In 2013, Arnold & Son managed the incredible feat of creating a super thin tourbillon watch called the Ultra-Thin Tourbillon Escapement, or simply, the UTTE watch. The watch was just 8.34mm thick, while the movement itself was a scant 2.97mm thick. Though it has lost the title of the world’s thinnest tourbillon watch to the Bulgari […]

  • Arnold & Son Nebula Watch Hands-On

    Arnold & Son Nebula Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    One thing I have in common with Arnold & Son’s designer for movements and overall brand aesthetic, Sebastien Chaulmontet, is a love of symmetry. No, not all of the things he designs are perfectly symmetrical – after all, there must be some variety in life – but he tries harder than perhaps anyone else when […]
