With the new TE8 Métiers d’Art II, Arnold & Son demonstrates its traditional prowess in the classical decorative arts. Limited to just eight exclusive timepieces, this watch is inspired by the pocket watches made during the earlier part of John Arnold’s life for King George III and the royal court. This latest addition to the Arnold & Son Royal Collection is an eloquent expression of elegance and sophistication in the inimitable English style.
Arnold & Son’s Tourbillon TE8 measures 44 mm in diameter in its classically elegant 18-carat red gold case. Just like last year’s model, this exceptional timepiece is powered by the A&S8000 calibre and offers the same type of aesthetics as its predecessor.
What sets this unique timepice esthetically and technically apart is its unique “English” design: the barrel bridge has a ¾ wave-shape, the tourbillon and motion-work bridges are triangular, and even the wheels are shaped with a distinctive three-spoke design. This same design cue can also be found on the tourbillon cage and the barrel bridge as well.
It goes without saying that every finishing touch on this striking piece has been done by hand by Arnold & Son’s master watchmakers, thus fulfilling the highest standards of superlative Haute Horlogerie finish and bringing more brilliance and depth to each element of the movement.
