Arnold & Son’s Two New References Of Ultra-thin Tourbillon

Arnold & Son's Exceptional Ultra-thin Tourbillon

Arnold & Son unveils two new references of the UTTE featuring stunning 18-carat solid gold hand guilloché dials.
The UTTE is part of Arnold & Son’s Instrument Collection, wherein timepieces are easily identified by their dial design, with off-center position of the hours and minutes to allow for the display of other complications without one overlapping the other. The two new UTTE references follow this design aesthetic, with the spherical tourbillon occupying the lower portion of the breathtaking 18-carat solid gold hand guilloché dial. The art of guilloché is an age-old handcraft that uses a rose engine to etch intricate patterns onto watch dials.

Each new reference of the UTTE houses the A&S8200 movement measuring just 2.97 mm thick and the final cased watch a mere 8.34 mm, making the UTTE one of the thinnest tourbillon watches on the market.
And, while the movement diameter is 32 mm, the tourbillon cage is a massive 14 mm in diameter – thus occupying almost half of the movement space for impressive visual appeal. To add further dramatic beauty to this already impressive watch, Arnold & Son created a totally spherical tourbillon cage – one devoid of any flat surfaces – for a magnificent three-dimensional aesthetic effect. In fact, the flying tourbillon cage is not inset into the calibre, but instead rises out of the movement, through the dial, and achieves the same height as the hour and minute hands.

Finally, to ensure a long power reserve of at least 90 hours, the brand implemented two barrels to offer more constant force and unprecedented power reserve for an ultra-thin tourbillon.
Each UTTE reference is limited to twenty-eight timepieces. If desired, the watch is available with a diamond-set bezel.
