Lavishly illustrated, new Arnold & Son Catalogue 2014/2015 comes with new chapters and an entirely overhauled design. Its content ranges from the legends behind the brand to a full presentation and description of each model and their movements, all manufactured in-house.
In 2014, Arnold & Son celebrated its 25oth anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, the company has launched five new in-house movements and various special editions that pay tribute to the achievements of John Arnold and his son. The history section of the catalogue also details John Arnold’s life and describes the regard in which he was held by King George III, and his fellow watchmakers, including A.-L. Breguet himself.
Moving on from past to present, the catalogue presents a brief overview of the brand’s development and production facilities in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It also explains how Arnold & Son belongs to a select group of watchmaking companies in Switzerland entitled to call themselves a manufacture – the French term for a watch manufacturing company that designs, develops and produces its movements in its own workshops. An impressive collection of Arnold & Son calibres, with a complete range of sophisticated complications, reflects the brand’s prowess in this field. Unlike other watch manufacturers, which often use the same calibre for different models, Arnold & Son develops a new movement for every single model. Every Arnold & Son movement thus has its own story to tell and reflects the brand’s heritage.
Copies of the catalogue are available from authorized Arnold & Son retailers and distributors or can be downloaded from website at www.arnoldandson.com
