Arnold & Son unveils a new rendition of its unique DBG dual-time (GMT) timepiece, the DBG Skeleton. An acronym for “double balance” and “GMT”, the DBG Skeleton – a part of the Instrument Collection – references the precise chronometers built by John Arnold and his son. With a new skeletonized execution, the DBG Skeleton showcases Arnold & Son’s watchmaking prowess as well as attention to aesthetic details with the newly developed manufacture A&S1309 calibre, which has been conceived, designed and manufactured entirely in-house.
In this timepiece, the lavishing skeleton work reveals exquisite artistic detail, from the blued screws to the Côtes de Genève stripes and satin finish running across the bridges and edges of the dial. A masterpiece of perfect symmetry, the DBG Skeleton features two separate time displays, each driven by its own barrel and gear train with its own escapement and balance, now entirely visible thanks to its openworked execution. This highly unusual technical specification permits the two displays to be set independently of each other.
The DBG Skeleton is available in a Limited Edition of 30 timepieces.
