Arnold & Son Unveils New Marvels of Precision and Elegance with Latest Ultrathin Skeleton Timepieces

In a splendid revelation that preludes the Watches and Wonders 2024, Swiss watchmaking maestro Arnold & Son has introduced two new models to its esteemed Ultrathin Skeleton collection. These timepieces, epitomes of horological artistry and innovation, are presented in luxurious red gold and platinum versions, marking a significant milestone in the world of precision watchmaking.

The spotlight shines on the new Ultrathin Skeleton models’ breathtakingly slim design, featuring cases that measure just 8.4 mm in thickness and 41.5 mm in diameter. This sleek profile encases one of the world’s thinnest flying tourbillon movements, a testament to Arnold & Son’s relentless pursuit of perfection and technical prowess.

Craftsmanship That Speaks Volumes

The newly unveiled Ultrathin Tourbillon Skeleton models are a celebration of finesse, characterized by their ultra-slim silhouette and sophisticated aesthetics. The flying tourbillon caliber A&S8320, showcased in its most refined form, sits at the heart of these masterpieces. Issued in two limited series of 28 pieces each, the collection is a rare treasure for watch aficionados and collectors alike.

Encapsulating elegance and precision, the caliber A&S8320’s remarkable slimness, at merely 3.3 mm thick, positions it among the slimmest skeleton tourbillon calibers in existence. Its one-minute flying tourbillon, a marvel of engineering, ensures unparalleled accuracy, further enhanced by a variable-inertia balance for optimal calibration stability.

A Symphony of Design and Function

Arnold & Son’s latest creations are a testament to the beauty of skeletonized movements, offering a glimpse into the intricate workings of the watch in a manner that is both orderly and aesthetically pleasing. The Ultrathin Tourbillon Skeleton models in Red Gold and Platinum distinguish themselves through their exquisite bridges, adorned with Côtes de Genève stripes and a rose-gold PVD finish, emanating a sense of originality and sophistication.

The A&S8320 caliber, the heart of these timepieces, is a masterpiece of design, emphasizing the brand’s hallmark elegance. Its architecture, devoid of an upper bridge, allows for a slim profile, categorizing it as a flying tourbillon. The innovative design of the tourbillon carriage and regulating organ not only enhances the watch’s aesthetic appeal but also contributes to an impressive 100-hour power reserve, showcasing Arnold & Son’s commitment to exceptional performance.

A Legacy of Precision and Innovation

Arnold & Son’s heritage is deeply rooted in the pioneering spirit of John Arnold, an 18th-century English watchmaker whose contributions to maritime chronometry revolutionized the way time and location were determined at sea. Today, the brand continues to embody the principles of astronomy, chronometry, and world time, crafting timepieces that are a tribute to its namesake’s legacy.

With more than twenty calibers developed in-house, Arnold & Son exemplifies the pinnacle of watchmaking excellence and innovation. The Ultrathin Skeleton collection, with its latest additions, continues to push the boundaries of design and technology, honoring the brand’s storied history and bright future.

As Arnold & Son gears up for Watches and Wonders 2024, the unveiling of these ultrathin marvels not only sets a new standard for elegance and precision but also reinforces the brand’s standing as a leader in the world of luxury watchmaking.
