The Robb Report is the connoisseur’s guide to luxury automobiles, yachts, hotels, watches, wines and much more. In its June issue, celebrating the 26th annual Best of the Best awards, the magazine singled out Arnold & Son Time Pyramid as a winner in the Men’s Watches / Conceptual Innovation category.
The Time Pyramid is an inspired combination of the brand’s British heritage with watchmaking expertise and ingenuity, designed and developed entirely at Arnold & Son’s workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The timepiece’s unique new layout positions the essential components to striking effect, showcasing the brand’s sophisticated approach to design and skilfully fusing concepts developed by John Arnold himself with several modernist touches.
With a skeletonised, pyramid-shaped movement, which appears to float between the two sapphire glass covers, the Time Pyramid recalls the glass-domed skeleton clocks that enjoyed such popularity in 19th-century Britain. In a masterful demonstration of technical prowess and unmatched elegance, this superbly engineered wristwatch is a part of the brand’s Instrument Collection, which brings together instrument-standard precision with classic styling.
