Arnold & Son unveiled the Royal TEC1 Tourbillon Chronograph, a timepiece that integrates a high-frequency tourbillon, a column wheel chronograph and an automatic winding system, a first time for the British watchmaker.
The lower portion of the anthracite dial features the chronograph function, with the 60 minutes counter located at 6 o’clock to balance the tourbillon aperture. The seconds counter is offered via a central seconds hand.
The 45 mm red gold case houses the palladium-treated A&S8305 calibre which beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour and guarantees a power reserve of 55 hours. The column wheel is visible via the transparent sapphire case back.
The chronograph levers are satin-finished with hand-chamfered, polished edges and all screws are blued with bevelled and mirror polished heads. The 22-carat red gold skeletonised rotor is hand-engraved with brushed surfaces and chamfered polished edges.
The Arnold & Son Royal TEC1 Tourbillon Chronograph (ref. 1CTAR.G01A.C112R) is delivered with a hand-stitched brown or black alligator leather strap.
