Arnold & Son TES Tourbillon with sapphire barrel bridge

The new Arnold & Son TES Tourbillon has a beautiful tourbillon carriage visible at 6 o’clock on the dial side of this watch, but it is the sapphire crystal barrel bridge — which allows a perfect view of the open worked barrel and wheels — that sets this timepiece apart.

The Arnold & Son Double Tourbillon Escapement Dual Time is a new GMT watch that will launch at Baselworld a few weeks from now. Unlike your typical dual time watch, this has completely separate time zone displays. Meaning, the local time and second time zone have their own gear train and tourbillon escapement, allowing the wearer to set hours and minutes independent of one another. This is a true dual time watch.

Arnold & Son Ultra-Thin Tourbillon Escapement

With the help of their new parent company, La Joux Perret, watchmaker Arnold & Son released a slew of awesome new timepieces equipped with manufacture movements this year at Baselworld. We already covered the Time Pyramid HERE, and will cover another one of their watches soon, but today we will discuss the UTTE. The Ultra-Thin Tourbillon Escapement has the world’s smallest tourbillon movement. Well, to be precise, it is tied with the Breguet Classique Grandes Complications 5377BR Ultra Thin (which we will cover later this week) for the world’s smallest tourbillon movement. At 2.97 mm it is the same thickness as the Breguet, however, the Breguet timepiece is housed in a case that is only 7 mm thick compared to the 8.34 mm thickness of the Arnold & Son.
