Arnold & Son has released a 960 platinum version of its Globetrotter timepiece, which comes in a 45 mm diameter case, with a highly domed sapphire crystal to accommodate the hand finished rhodium plated arched bridge going across the center of the dial. Underneath the bridge is a domed globe motif of the Earth’s Northern Hemisphere, which is surrounded by a 24-hour ring and traditional 12-hour indices surrounding that. The Globetrotter Platinum indicates hours and minutes via red arrow hands that point to the outer chapter ring and 24-hour world time ring, and that rotate in sync with the globe in the center. The globe is luminescent, adding to the visual appeal. Flip the case over to view the finely finished automatic movement. $35,000
