The firm finds inspiration in its esteemed history, as displayed by the guilloché pattern found on the main plate of the present lot, which pays homage to the cases of antique Arnold & Son pocket watches. The firm focuses on combining old and new elements in its design for this piece. The tourbillon on the Tes distinguishes itself from other models by being 'inverted', as most of its visually interesting features can are shown on the dial side, rather than the reverse. The unique barrel spring bridge has the traditional English wave form, but Arnold & Son has updated the design by making it out of sapphire to allow a view of the open-worked barrel and wheels.
The present lot demonstrates the firm's ability to combine technological skill with elegant design to create a unique piece that honor's Arnold & Son's legacy, while also attracting modern collectors.
