Arnold & Son – DSTB (Dial Side True Beat)
Part of the Instrument Collection, the new Arnold & Son DSTB (Dial Side True Beat) features a newly created programmed development with a genuine beat seconds complication.
The disposition is that the seconds hand as well as the switch, the wheels and the three rose-gold treated genuine beat seconds spans are found on the dial side. Giving recognition to Arnold’s oceanic achievements, the genuine beat seconds switch is shaped like an anchor.
The huge sapphire dial that involves the upper left part of the dial at 11 o’clock demonstrates the true beat seconds. At 4 o’clock, a white lacquered domed subdial with blued hands indicates the hours and the minutes. The outcome is an eye-getting three-dimensional dial.
The red gold case has a distance across of 43.5 mm (a size embraced for a few Arnold & Son watches) and houses the self-winding type A&S6003 which beats at 28,800 vibrations each hour. The 229 components development highlights Haute Horlogerie getting done with hand-chamfered and silk completed switch and scaffolds, cleaned edges and fine roundabout graining and Côtes de Genève rayonnantes. It offers a power save of 50 hours.
The Arnold & Son DSTB is a restricted version of 50 pieces.
