Arnold & Son has designed and developed moon phase watches in the past, but this HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine Watch is just spectacular. The solid gold moon phase is placed strategically above the sparkling blue Aventurine quartz dial and then paired with the in-house mechanical calibre and released as limited edition. The beauty of this piece is just magnificent, exquisitely presented with textural variation and finished with an elegance that takes your breath away.
Great design is the foundation of Arnold & Son timepieces, and holds true with this HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine Watch. The vibrant and shimmering features of this timepiece, done in red gold, appear to be huge on the 29mm-diameter aperture that is placed to perfection over the dial, and is home to the 11.2mm-wide moon that is mesmerizing as it floats in the lacquered blue, guilloche sky. The case developed in 18 carat red gold is a stunning 42mm diameter and both case and bezel have a polished finish that contrasts the lugs which are a brushed finish. The brand logo rests on the crown and the entire watch is a presence to be reckoned with. The golden rule for horological designers is to make a timepiece that stands tall without consuming the wrist and not fitting comfortably under a shirt, and this watch meets all those demands. The beauty of the dial crafted in the blue aventurine quartz and then the decorated moon disc that features the solid 18k red gold moon and golden stars creates quite a spectacle on the face of this masterpiece. The attention to detail on this timepiece is reinforced by the immaculate handcrafting that executes every aspect of this watch.
Heart and Soul
The heart of the movement of this timepiece is the exclusive Arnold & Son mechanical hand wound calibre A&S1512, which was developed specifically for the moon phases complication and designed with a double barrel to provide the 90 hour power reserve. The precision of this timepiece offers the moon phase with a one day deviation every 122 years and still features a easy to set option because it comes with a second moon phases indicator that is visibile through the transparent case back. The technological aspects of this HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine watch are quite impressive, but beyond that the rhodium plated movement has hand finished detail that makes it shine like a diamond.
Never The End
Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine watch is a collectors dream, a signature statement timepiece that embraces intricate design and purpose-built movement that is not only impressive but technologically brilliant. Competitively priced, this watch with limited edition is sure to be sought after and very respected in the industry.
