Arnold & Son Celebrates 250 Years with the Heritage-Inspired, Cutting Edge Limited Edition DSTB
 
Demonstrating its rich British history and quality Swiss craftsmanship, Arnold & Son unveils the limited edition DSTB (Dial Side True Beat). A tribute to the brand’s 250thanniversary, the DSTB is a testament to its heritage, vision and Haute Horlogerieingenuity.

 The DSTB is part of the Instrument Collection and, like every other model from Arnold & Son, features an in-house mechanical movement. The true beat seconds is a traditional complication of Arnold & Son, and this watch pays tribute to the watches produced by John Arnold during the second half of his career, when he and his son were the first to develop marine chronometers that could be produced in quantity at reasonable prices. Those technically superior, widely distributed chronometers reflected Arnold & Son’s commitment to exceptional precision and solved the problem of determining longitude at sea.


The magnificent timepiece is housed inside a 43.5 mm 18-carat red gold case with anti-reflective sapphire crystal and caseback for viewing the superbly finished movement, complete with skeletonised oscillating weight. The 250th anniversary edition of the DSTB will be limited to just 50 timepieces – underscoring the brand’s commitment to exclusivity and excellence
