Part of the Instrument Collection, the new Arnold & Son DSTB (Dial Side True Beat) features a newly developed automatic movement with a true beat seconds complication.
The large sapphire dial that occupies the top left portion of the dial at 11 o’clock indicates the true beat seconds. At 4 o’clock, a white lacquered domed subdial with blued hands indicates the hours and the minutes. The result is an eye-catching three-dimensional dial.
The red gold case has a diameter of 43.5 mm (a size adopted for several Arnold & Son timepieces) and houses the self-winding calibre A&S6003 which beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The 229 components movement features Haute Horlogerie finishing with hand-chamfered and satin-finished lever and bridges, polished edges and fine circular graining and Côtes de Genève rayonnantes. It offers a power reserve of 50 hours.
The Arnold & Son DSTB is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
