The new Arnold & Son Instrument DSTB reminds us once again about high-quality Swiss craftsmanship, this time in shiny stainless form. Equipped with an in-house mechanical movement and featuring the true beat seconds, this gorgeous timepiece honors the technically superior watches produced by John Arnold.
The newly designed movement is the self-winding calibre A&S6003, which consists of 32 jewels and 229 components, with a 45-hour power reserve keeping everything moving – although, standing perfectly still. We’re sure it’s going to be a real pleasure to see this exquisite mechanism in action.
Arnold & Son fans probably won’t treat this watch as a surprise, but the palladium-treated movement features a special Haute Horlogerie finishing, with hand-chamfered and satin-finished lever and bridges. Furthermore, the visible dial plate is blue PVD-treated with a large circular finishing, resulting in an eye catching and somewhat futuristic aesthetic effect.
This new timepiece shows off a 43.5 mm stainless steel case, with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and caseback, allowing everyone to admire the superbly finished movement. Water-resistant to 30 meters, the watch comes attached to a hand-stitched black or brown alligator leather and will set you back about CHF 27,900.
