Arnold and Son originally released the TE8 tourbillon back in 2012. Since then they have released a number of other versions. The two new references in this post harken back to the beautiful simplicity of the first watch. Originally released with a rose gold case (which has a different copper content than red gold) and the same A&S8000 movement that is found in the new version, the TE8 collection is haute horlogerie at it's finest. Both the balance wheel and tourbillon are centered along the center axis, allowing for some exquisite decoration that is unique to Arnold & Son (although it basically has the same visual effect of Omega's 85-- calibers. Each piece of the movement is both hand-finished and assembled by Arnold and Son's watchmakers. The movement features 19 jewels, a power reserve of 80 hours, and 21,600BPH. Similar to other Arnold and Son watches I have covered in the past, both versions have 44mm cases and are water resistant to 30m. These watches, however, are not easy to come by. There will be just 25 pieces in red gold and the same number in white gold.
