The new Arnold & Son watches are available in sets, which number is strictly limited to 25 pieces. Each set includes three fascinating models. Every item catches the eye with its one-of-a-kind dial, which realistically replicates the scene from Cook’s famous voyages.
The dial of the first James Cook limited edition watch presents the scene of landing at Botany Bay in Australia. The display of the second timepiece offers a discovery of Antarctica. The third unit reveals a death in Hawaii scene, a place where James Cook died in a riot.
The dial of every model is liberated from numerals and hour-markers in order to keep focus on the episodes from James Cook’s life. Keeping pace of hours and minutes are delicate central hands. They are joined by a second hand, tipped with an arrow, as well as a sun-shaped GMT hand. The display also offers a date indication, arranged in an exhibition window at 5 o’clock.
A true piece of art, the watch face is gently hugged by a rotating bezel, which serves as a third time zone indicator. The functions, provided by the new James Cook limited edition watches, are driven by an exclusive automatic movement.
The dial of each Arnold & Son watch is housed in an 18k pink gold case, which is held securely in place by a dark-toned leather strap. Created with an outstanding historical personality in mind, this line will definitely have a high value for the collectors.
