Arnold & Son is proud to communicate as winner in the category ‘Best Design Watch’ the Time Pyramid. A masterpiece of perfect symmetry, the A&S1615 movement with unique skeletonised pyramid-shaped architecture, was conceived, designed and developed in-house.
The movement A&S1615 seemingly floats between two sapphire crystals, the Time Pyramid is a masterful rendition of technical prowess and unparalleled elegance. This superbly engineered wristwatch is part of the brand’s Instrument Collection that combines instrumentprecision with classical styling.
Inspired by the regulators created by John and Roger Arnold over two hundred years ago,and by antique British skeleton clocks, the new Arnold & Son Time Pyramid offers a highly cohesive and seductive blend of watchmaking feats that includes regulator, skeleton, verticallinear movement, pyramid-placement of components and multi-dimensional depth.
The skeletonised calibre A&S1615 follows the original regulators from the brand with its component positioning and detailed 3D visual appeal. Movement parts and watch indications are built on three levels, with the subsidiary seconds dial on the bottom, the hour indicationson a sapphire crystal dial in the middle level, and a silver top ring for the minutes indication.
While the movement is extremely thin - at just 4.4 mm - the multiple levels bring amazingdepth and detail to the watch. To further enhance the balance and symmetry of theTime Pyramid, the crown (with Arnold & Son’s engraved logo) is artfully positioned atsix o’clock.
