Watch brand Arnold & Son has introduced a new skeletonised tourbillon as a modern tribute to a historical chronometer made by its founder.
The Tourbillon Chronometer No. 36 champions symmetry and skeletonisation and draws inspiration from the John Arnold pocket chronometer No. 1/36, which will mark its 240th anniversary in 2018.
The £36,000 technical masterpiece has its wheels, barrels and tourbillon mounted on their own bridges that build into a three dimensional movement.
The tourbillon features a traditional construction with a top bridge, while the mirror-polished cage has the signature Arnold & Son three-spoke design.
