The Time Pyramid has been a sought-after watch in the Arnold & Son lineup for years. Now, the skeletonized watch is joined by an important horological feat: the tourbillon. The all-new, hand-wound movement, A&S8615, is organized in a pyramid-shaped format (in tribute to the clocks that the Arnold family built in the late 18th century) and showcases the tourbillon escapement at the 12 o’clock apex.
With the added tourbillon escapement, chronometric precision is enhanced. So as not to disrupt the visual elegance of the watch, Arnold & Son places the crown at 6 o’clock on the case. The hours and minutes are depicted on the lower dial ring, and the seconds appear on the tourbillon.
The blued steel hands on either side of the dial at 3 and 9 o’clock indicate the power reserve (90 hours) and display how the right barrel takes over when the left barrel is low on power.
