ARNOLD & Son’s moon phase watch has always been favored by the market due to its outstanding faceplate design and special movement developed exclusively by the brand. In 2019, Arnold & Son launched the new HM Perpetual Moon moon phase watch, this time the face plate changed to a piece of blue aventurine with a beautiful moon phase disc to present new works. On the one hand, it continues the brand’s tradition of producing astronomical complexities, on the other hand it also shows its rich British history and advanced Swiss craftsmanship.
The watch has a moon phase disc at 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock, and the 18k gold carved moon phase in the moon phase disc is also the largest moon phase engraving in the commercially available moon phase watch, which makes the wearer feel the strong visual impact
This timepiece with a blue engraved moon phase disk and a golden engraved moon, built-in A & S1512 self-winding movement developed for the moon phase function built in Arno table, equipped with a dual barrel, providing 90 hours of power. This movement powers a super-accurate moon phase with an error of only one day every 122 years, and has a fast moon phase adjustment function. In addition, the second moon phase display with a gradient small disk can be seen on the transparent case back, allowing users to precisely adjust the moon phase.
The watch is crafted in 18K rose gold with a 42 mm diameter case, with anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a hand-stitched alligator strap
In addition to technical achievements, the watch’s entire rhodium-plated nickel-silver movement is hand-finished, including splints decorated with Geneva stripes and fine circular patterns, edges with chamfered polishing, gears with circular patterns, and edge-finished Chamfered polished blue steel screws. In terms of appearance, the machine-engraved moon phase disk runs from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock, showing the golden carved moon phases in 18K rose gold. The hour and minute hands on the cut surface move along the twelve golden three-dimensional hour markers on the surface of the blue aventurine. Its exquisite aesthetic design makes the watch exude luxury and elegance.
