Has a strong British tradition and unique style. Arnold & Son has never let watch lovers down. The watch deftly blends respected watchmaking tradition, forward-thinking wisdom and unremitting pursuit of excellence. . The brand has always been pursuing the strength of high-end watches, and typical examples can be seen in the new CTB watches.
Demonstrating the brand’s commitment to pursuing forward-looking accuracy, the master watchmakers of Arnold & Son have always been brave enough to accept the challenge, creating the world’s first chronograph watch with a central jump seconds hand. The gorgeous CTB watch marks the brand’s second chronograph watch, which combines the iconic jumping seconds complication of the instrument series; while maintaining the series’ high visual readability. At the level of visual beauty, the central jumping seconds hand and the central chronograph seconds hand are combined on the same axis, but each has a different beating range. Getting two functions to work from the center at the same time requires very high technical skills. The unique invention of Arnold & Son includes two patent protections.
Sometimes called a second jump, the second jump is a very accurate function; the second jump is not the same as rotating around the dial, which allows more accurate timekeeping. To achieve this function is a very difficult feat, but the Arnold & Son challenged more difficult, combining the second hand of the seconds and chronograph function on the same axis. The result is that when the chronograph hand starts to run continuously, a very wonderful visual effect will appear; the situation is like the chronograph hand is about to catch up with the jumping seconds hand, but it can never catch up; because the real jumping seconds are every second Jumping away like a cat-and-mouse game.
A & S7103 is an exclusive self-winding mechanical movement with a column wheel operation timing function. The movement is modified to create the balance and beauty of the dial, with eccentric hours and minutes at 12 o’clock, a large central jumping seconds hand, a central chronograph hand and a 60-minute chronograph hand at 6 o’clock. The movement is equipped with 31 gems and operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, providing more than 50 hours of kinetic energy reserve. This world-first watch is also equipped with ceramic bearings, creating bidirectional windings to increase efficiency.
Each movement is carefully crafted with fine watchmaking, hand-chamfered bridge polished edges, fine round patterns, radiant Geneva motifs, brushed skeleton rotors and beveled and mirror-polished screw heads, all carefully crafted. The 44 mm diameter stainless steel case version is a light gray and silver white porcelain dial. Each dial has a multi-level structure with at least three different finishings, and its depth and dimensions are breathtaking.
