Deftly blending its British heritage with its Swiss watchmaking savoir-faire, Arnold & Son offers a new calibre to its Time Pyramid collection. With a skeletonized pyramid-shaped tourbillon seemingly floating between two sapphire crystals, the Time Pyramid Tourbillon is a true rendition of technical prowess and elegance.
The skeletonised calibre A&S8615 pays tribute to the John Arnold’s regulators. The movement is built on three levels. The tourbillon and the two power reserve indicators are superposed by a sapphire crystal dial indicating the hours itself, crowned with a rhodium plated ring for the minutes. This exclusive construction offers a lively-look and three-dimensional face to the timepiece and, to further enhance the balance and symmetry, the crown is positioned at six o’clock.
Pyramid Tourbillon presents a cohesive combination of watchmaking feats organized in a pyramidal architecture. The blued steel hands indicating these power reserves artfully demonstrate how the right barrel takes over when the left barrel reaches a limited power and thus, to maintain an optimum and accurate functioning. The two barrels supply the in-house manufactured calibre with a total of 90-hour power reserve. The Time Pyramid Tourbillon is housed in a 44.6 mm diameter 18-karat red gold or steel case. The model combines with alligator strap.
