Arnold & Son unveils a new stainless steel edition of the DSTB (Dial Side True Beat), an haute Horlogerie collection that demonstrates the brand’s rich British history and quality Swiss craftsmanship.
Equipped with an in-house mechanical movement and featuring the true beat seconds, a traditional complication of Arnold & Son, the DSTB watch pays tribute to the watches produced by John Arnold during the second half of his career, when he and his son were the first to develop marine chronometers that could be produced in quantity at reasonable prices. Those technically superior, widely distributed chronometers reflected Arnold & Son’s commitment to exceptional precision and solved the problem of determining longitude at sea.
