True to English watchmaking heritage, Arnold & Son unveils the TES Blue Tourbillon, with the hand-finished A&S8100 caliber 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 openworked barrel, wheels and the blue main plate. The tourbillon and motion-work bridges are classically triangular but are skeletonized. The combination of sapphire and open-worked bridges gives an incredible depth and three-dimensional effect to the watch and thus a modern look. The contemporary aspect is further underscored by the vibrant blue of the main plate.
