Arnold & Son, a famous british watchmaker and one of the oldest watchmaking firms in the world, sign responsible for the earliest wristwatches together with Breguet.
Based on an old table clock, they created an amazing timepiece: the Time Pyramid.
They created a totally new watchmovement with a unique movement architecture which I have never seen or heard of before.
The skeletonized pyramid-shaped movement is seemingly floating between two sapphire crystals. There are two power reserve indicators on the upper left and right.
The 44.6 mm case is large, but not too large. This watch has a Red Gold case which possesses a nice heft and weight.
This timepiece has a power reserve of 80 hours which is quite impressive for a handwound movement. The winding crown sits at 6 o’clock due to the movement construction. I found it comfortable to wind the watch from this position, but you have to take it off your wrist to wind it.
The Time Pyramid displays hours, minutes, seconds and possesses a double power reserve indication.
Below you see the table clock on which the Time Pyramid is based.
I must say, this watch was one of the most impressive timepiece I saw at this year’s Baselworld. I am curious to see what Arnold & Son will show us next.
