Arnold & Son Métiers d’Art HM Falcon

The Métiers d’Art HM Falcon Unique Piece from Arnold & Son will appeal to watch connoisseurs who appreciate the finest-quality watchmaking combined with beautiful arts and crafts. The hand-painted miniature depicts a Falcon proudly perched atop a rock against the clear sky.  On the white mother of pearl dial, the artist has used delicate nuances of colours and tones, using tiny brushstrokes and texturing gradually to build-up the entire image of the falcon with an astonishing richness of details and depth. The art of painting miniatures by hand calls for infinite patience and consummate skill.
This unique piece boasts the ultra-thin A&S1001 manufacture movement with over 90 hours of power reserve; the movement is housed in an 18-karat rose gold case, with a brown alligator strap.
The Métiers d’Art HM Falcon is limited to just one example. If desired, the watch is available with a diamond-set bezel.
