Perfect symmetryPreview BASELWORLD 2017: The Arnold & Son Nebula
Arnold & Son explores the length and breadth of symmetry to give life to the Nebula watch. The holistically designed, skeletonised movement and dial offer a three-dimensional view into the heart of the watch, each element of which has been purposely crafted to achieve perfect symmetry, not only horizontally and vertically but also front and back.
At 12 o'clock, twin barrels providing a comfortable 90 hours of power reserve create a striking mirror effect with the small seconds and balance below. Seven triangular bridges radiate from the perimeter to the centre of the dial to form a sculptural movement, like an inverted, exploded star. Indeed, Nebula takes its name from nebulae, an astronomical term to describe a cloud of cosmic gas and dust formed from the debris of exploding stars.
