It’s been 240 years since the creation of John Arnold’s historically significant Chronometer No. 1/36, the first time-measuring instrument to be called a “chronometer” for its unprecedented precision. To mark the historical milestone, Arnold & Son has introduced a modern homage edition of the Tourbillon Chronometer No.36, a COSC-certified Tourbillon wristwatch.
The first commemorative edition of the Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36 unveiled last year featured a more traditional English frosted gilt finish on the movement, produced as a limited-edition series that immediately become a must-have for aficionados of Arnold & Son timepieces and precision chronometers. The 240th anniversary Tribute Edition of the Tourbillon Chronometer No.36 offers the opportunity to acquire this exceptional and contemporary reinterpretation of John Arnold’s revered chronometer, and thus will be produced as a non-limited production series in rose gold and stainless steel models.
