Arnold and Son - Tourbillon TE8 Métiers d’Art I

| No comment
Limited to just 8 pieces, the new Tourbillon TE8 Métiers d’Art I is a demonstration of the watchmaking prowess of the Arnold & Son British brand.
Inspired by the pocket watches made during the earlier part of John Arnold’s life for King George III and the royal court, the design of the Tourbillon TE8 is characterised by the  ¾ wave-shape barrel bridge and the triangular tourbillon and motion-work bridges. Another distinctive element is the three-spoke design of the wheels, the tourbillon cage and barrel bridge.
This timepiece has a strong personality: just consider how the barrel spring and the tourbillon cage are centred along the watch’s longitudinal axis - a technical challenge - in order to achieve a symmetrical layout of the movement or the use of wheels with long and narrow spokes known as wolf’s teeth to improve the smoothness of the winding system and the gear train.
Each Tourbillon TE8 Métiers d’Art I is hand-engraved by Arnold & Son’s own master engraver, who created a new engraving pattern specifically for this special edition. This new pattern is composed of complex geometrical elements arising from the centre of the movement. The engraving was particularly complex because the movement is made of German Silver, which is very hard.

The hand-wound movement, with a thickness of 6.25 mm, beats at 21,600 vph and offers a power reserve 80 hours.
The classical rose gold case has a diameter of 44 mm. Each piece is individually hand-numbered by Arnold & Son's master engraver.
