Arnold & Son unveils the TES Blue Tourbillon, with the hand-finished A&S8100 calibre with sapphire barrel bridge and blue main plate. This defining timepiece is part of the Royal Collection which combines classic styling with leading-edge technology.
Aesthetically what sets Arnold & Son’s new TES Blue Tourbillon apart is its modern take on the distinguished “English” movement design: the barrel bridge for instance has the traditional English wave-form but is made out of sapphire to allow a maximum view on the open-worked barrel, wheels and the blue main plate. The tourbillon and motion-work bridges are classically triangular but are skeletonised.
The unique Arnold & Son design is also reflected by the three-spoke wheels. This same three-spoke design can also be found in the tourbillon cage and the openings in the main plate. The decoration of the main plate is a reminiscence of an old guilloche pattern found on the cases of antique Arnold & Son pocket watches. The main plate is also skeletonised around the barrel and the tourbillon carriage allowing to look through the movement and therefore through the watch itself.
