Arnold & Son Luna Magna Red Gold Meteorite

The new Arnold & Son Luna Magna Red Gold Meteorite watch evokes the sky, fire and the stars with its distinct colour scheme. Equipped with three-dimensional moon-phase complication, this 44mm watch boasts a blue PVD-treated meteorite dial-plate and an off-center hour & minute dial in Super-LumiNova coated white opal.

The subdial displaying the hours and minutes has a milky, almost lunar sheen thanks to its surface in opal, a semiprecious stone prized for its white colour, whose delicacy perfectly complements the unique complication of the Luna Magna Red Gold Meteorite.

The spacious dial is made from a large disc of ferrous meteorite coloured blue using the PVD process. The warm glow of the red gold, which contrasts with the midnight-blue dial, completes the precious and understated look of this limited edition of 38 pieces.

The deep matt blue PVD treated meteorite dial with criss-crossing, jagged geometric Widmanstätten patterns evokes the Sea of Tranquillity. The moon, a sphere formed half from Cacholong opal and half from blue PVD meteorite, reflects the nature of the celestial body.

The opal half of the moon and the subdial are coated with Super-LumiNova, only revealing their blue-green glow – invisible by day – once night falls.

Luna Magna Red Gold Meteorite is driven by the A&S1021 calibre, which has been fully developed, machined, assembled and adjusted in the Arnold & Son Manufacture. This hand-wound calibre, which has been designed with the lunar globe in mind, features a 90-hour power reserve and a regulating organ oscillating at a frequency of 3 Hz.

The movement also includes a secondary display detailing the age of the moon on the case-back side. Its clearly readable markings are designed for high-precision lunar adjustments.

Arnold & Son has managed to replicate the lunar cycle in such a way that it will take 122 years for the movement’s display to deviate from the correct celestial reading by one day. The correction required at this time will be easy to make, as the Luna Magna Red Gold Meteorite’s moon-phase function is directly accessible from the crown.
