Arnold & Son Royal Collection HM Flower Special Editions

The HM Flower Special Editions from Arnold & Son will appeal to women who appreciate finest-quality watchmaking with beautiful design.

Each of the four models in the series depicts a hand-painted miniature of a flower in full bloom, the rich, deep colours set off to perfection by the understatement of the dial in white mother-of-pearl. The exclusive nature of these four wonderful references is underscored by their limitation to just eight examples of each model.

The models comprising the HM Flower Special Editions from Arnold & Son were created to appeal to feminine sensibilities.

Available in four distinctive references, the special editions each celebrate a different flower: a magenta-coloured orchid, yellow and purple irises, and a wonderful orange lily. Each of the flowers is depicted in a hand-painted miniature, executed with exquisite delicacy of touch and featuring fine details that evoke the depth and texture of the blossom.

The expertly applied layers of paint and nuances of colour create a breathtaking sense of three-dimensional depth. The sumptuousness of the flowers is a counterpoint to the simplicity of the white mother-of-pearl dial, which shimmers entrancingly with the play of light. It is enhanced by baton-style hands that show only the hours and minutes, and the clearly defined chapter ring with its modest dot indices.

Concealed inside the case is the A&S1001 movement, manufactured entirely in-house, with Haute Horlogerie finishing. It has twin barrels, which generate a 90-hour power reserve and guarantee more constant force, and which in turn provides a more constant rate and greater accuracy. All the plates and bridges in the movement are hand-chamfered and decorated: further testimony to the traditional craftsmanship upheld by Arnold & Son throughout its long history.
