Arnold and Son Presents Hornet Trafalgar Watch

Mar 29, 2010
The horological company Arnold & Son is delighted to unveil its stunning novelty, named Hornet Trafalgar, the Battle. The watch pays tribute to the overwhelming victory of the British Navy over the French and Spanish fleet, which was achieved in the course of the Napoleonic wars, on October, 21st, 1805. It is also dedicated to the memory of legendary Admiral Nelson, who was shot and died of his wounds at the moment of his greatest victory.

The fascinating Hornet Trafalgar watch is available with three different dial executions: each of them reveals a battle-themed hand-touch up painting.

The first dial proudly exposes Admiral Nelsonís ship, the Victory, and the smaller Euryalus, coming closer to the allied formation, as viewable from the British fleet.

The second dial exhibits the same scene, presented, however, from the enemy perspective. The Victory with its sails in shreds is about to defeat the French Bucentaure and Redoutable.

On the third dial, watch enthusiasts can see Admiral Nelsonís agony of death on the upper deck of the Victory. Nelson had been shot by a musket ball and died, when the victory was assured.

The new horological product is available with an impressive pink gold case, which measures 47 mm in diameter. Its thickness is equal to 14mm. The case construction provides 30-meter water-resistance.

The Arnold & Son watch is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, which runs at a frequency of 28, 800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve.

The movement serves to animate the functions of hours, minutes, date, GMT and a 24-hour display for the second time zone.

The Arnold & Son Hornet Trafalgar watch is accompanied by a leather strap, finished with a pin buckle. The watch has been issued in a limited series of 25 pieces.
