Friday, January 31 marks the beginning of the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the celebration of Chinese New Year. Each year in the Chinese calendar has a corresponding zodiac animal, and today marks the turnover from the Year of the Snake to the Year of the Horse. To mark the beginning of this much awaited year Arnold & Son proudly presents a special limited edition of 28 pairs of watches inspired by the horses depicted in traditional Chinese ink-wash paintings.
The two watches in each pairof this limited edition from Arnold & Son are powered by the A&S1001 calibre, developed, designed and manufactured entirely at Arnold & Son’s workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Adorning each of the two lacquer dials is a hand-finished miniature painting of two horses, one pair black and grey on white, the other white and grey against a black background. If you want to add a touch of luxury there is also the option of a diamond studded bezel. The timepieces are each presented with a high-quality black alligator leather strap.
