This exquisite, limited edition timepiece is part of the Arnold & Son Instrument Collection. True to Arnold & Son fashion, the DSTB features an exclusive in-house mechanical movement: A&S6003. This self-winding watch pays homage to the second half of John Arnold’s career and the development of marine chronometers in order to precisely determine longitude while at sea.
The DSTB is an innovative piece with a complicated movement. It features not only hands, but also wheels, levers and three palladium-treated true beat seconds bridges. In addition, the anchor-shape of the true beat seconds lever harkens back to the maritime tradition of the brand. Set on a stunning sapphire dial, the true beat seconds are highlighted just above a sub-dial with hours and minutes, giving the watch incredible dimension. There are 229 components to the timepiece, which has a 43.5-diameter, 18-carat white gold case. The movements are set in solid 22-carat red gold. There are only 125 editions of this exceptional watch — which makes the perfect edition to any watch aficionado’s collection.
