Arnold & Son Marks Chinese New Year with Limited Edition Watch Set

By Chris Boyle

arnold&son horse_Arnold & Son has greeted the Chinese New Year with an exquisitely crafted limited edition set.

The Horse is one of the twelve signs in the Chinese zodiac and one of its most revered symbols.

To mark the beginning of this much awaited year on 31 January 2014, Arnold & Son proudly presented a special limited edition of 28 pairs of watches inspired by the horses depicted in traditional Chinese ink-wash paintings.

The Horse is one of the most powerful symbols in the Chinese zodiac and stands for a wealth of desirable characteristics.

Individuals born under this sign, which is symbolic of speed and strength, are reputed to be energetic and independent with a free, unbounded spirit.

In honour of the Year of the Horse in the Chinese calendar, Arnold & Son has created 28 pairs of watches, each featuring a depiction of the horses often found in traditional Chinese ink wash painting.

The two watches in each pair of this limited edition from Arnold & Son are powered by the A&S1001 calibre, developed, designed and manufactured entirely at Arnold & Son’s workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

The classical design is underscored by the slim, 18-carat rose gold case, which is also available with an optional diamond-set bezel.

The simplicity of the black and white lacquered dials, which have just two hands and a minimalist chapter ring consisting of tiny dots, leaves the stage free for the dynamic miniature depiction of two charging horses.
