Arnold & Son HORNET Worldtimer

This sophisticated world timer watch features no less than six hands and pointers for indicating useful information. The Hornet from Arnold & Son maintains the brand’s trademark clarity and user-friendly handling .

Available in a beautifully rounded pink gold or steel case, the Arnold and Son HORNET Worldtimer watch is immediately distinguished by its three crowns and pushpieces symmetrically arranged at 9 and 10 o’clock on one side and 2 and 3 o’clock at the other. The dial plays on contrasting colours, clearly differentiated hands, alternating Arabic numerals and hourmarkers, and a mixture of pointer-type and window displays, in order to distinguish between the various items of information provided.

In the calendar segment, the Arnold and Son HORNET Worldtimer watch incorporates a double-disc date display and an inner dial for tracking the months. The sophisticated twin-time running indication features two hands turning simultaneously, and the city of LONDON is highlighted in red among the other cities appearing on the GMT ring, a nod in direction of the brand’s British origins.

Moreover, this function offers the unusual possibility of setting one of the twin time zones to take account of half time-zones in parts of the world. If desired, it can also display the mean solar time in a specific location by means of a dedicated golden sun-tipped hand. And finally, the equation of time is shown on a triangular white segment.
