New Additions to Arnold & Son HMS1 Collection

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland — Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The latest Arnold & Son timepiece is not only a tribute to John Arnold’s originality and skill but also to the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds itself, cradle of Swiss watchmaking and seat of the company.

The newest additions to the HMS1 collection feature an anthracite, cream or black dial in a classical elegant 18-carat rose gold case, a white or anthracite dial in a stainless steel case, and an 18-carat white gold case featuring a silver colored dial. The case is 40 mm in diameter and houses a manufacture hand-wound movement which is only 2.7 mm thick.

Immediately one notices the two barrels providing 80 hours power reserve. Whereas most watches in this segment of the market only provide a single barrel, the solution of having two barrels provides more constant power and more constant force, which will result in improved accuracy, something important for Arnold & Son.

Further details include hand angling and decoration of all bridges and fine hand stitching on the alligator leather strap. The Arnold & Son HMS1 is also water-resistant to 30 meters.
