This new reference under the TEC1 collection is exquisite. Want to find out more?
The new watch, whose name is rather long and therefore I will not mention, has just been announced by Arnold & Son, a Swiss manufacturer well-known for their heritage. At Baselworld 2014, A&S released this TEC1, which was the first time a company had ever put a chronograph, tourbillon, and automatic winding in one watch. This year, while the design has been minimally changed, gives new life to the design. The watch has a 45mm palladium case. The dial and strap are black, giving the watch a monotone look. In fact, the only color on the front of the watch (barring any reflection that may occur) is the jewel above the tourbillon. Every other visible component is either black or polished palladium. The guilloché dial covers the A&S8305 calibre, an exclusive selfwinding movement that displays the hours, minutes, but also has a tourbillon and a chronograph. This watch truly represents haute horlogerie with elaborate decoration, dual winding, a column-wheel chronograph, high-frequency tourbillon, and a tourbillon with a large three-dimensional display. www.arnoldandson.com
