A unique timepiece for a great cause: Arnold & Son presents a unique reference of its emblematic Time Pyramid for Only Watch 2017, to be auctioned for charity-benefiting the funding of research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by the Association Monégasque Contre Les Myopathies, under the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco The auction will be conducted by Christie’s during the biennial Only Watch charity auction in Geneva, taking place on the 11th of November 2017.
Inspired by the regulators created by John and Roger Arnold over two hundred years ago, and by antique British skeleton clocks, the Arnold & Son Time Pyramid offers a highly cohesive and seductive blend of watchmaking feats that includes regulator, skeleton, vertical linear movement, pyramid-placement of components and multi-dimensional depth.
For the unique Time Pyramid Only Watch 2017, the entire timepiece takes on a bold, contemporary execution. The stainless steel case is done with a black DLC treatment, while the skeletonized and symmetrical caliber A&S1615 receives a black ADLC coating, offering a striking contrast against traditional Haute Horlogerie hand-applied finishing and decoration.
Further highlighting the unique execution of the Time Pyramid Only Watch 2017 are the red accents applied to several components of the timepiece, adding a vibrant touch to the blacked-out timepiece. The hands of the two power reserve indicators (one per barrel) are painted red, as are the hour and minute hands and Roman numerals on the sapphire dial. The anthracite alligator strap adds the final touch with its red stitching.
The Arnold & Son Time Pyramid Only Watch unique piece will be sold at the Only Watch 2017 charity auction in Geneva on Saturday the 11th of November at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues.
