The new for 2018 Arnold & Son Globetrotter is the re-imagination of the world-time complication as a modern day navigation instrument. Showcased at Baselworld 2018, the centerpiece of this luxury watch is the beautiful 3D domed dial and polished arch bridge that resides over it.
A unique 3 dimensional domed dial depicts a view of the Earth’s continents and oceans from the North Pole looking downward. It is made of brass, textured by chemical etching with a mask, followed by polishing and lacquering. The globe rotates, along with a transparent 24-hour ring that lines up with the red hour hand to indicate the second time zone.
This interesting timepiece comes in a 45mm stainless steel case with 6.55mm thickness. Features cambered sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, sapphire back. Water resistant to 30 metres (3 bar/100 ft). Comes in a Hand-aged blue calf leather strap.
