The Arnold & Son Golden Wheel Offers Animated Wandering Hours

The Arnold & Son Golden Wheel presents a fresh take on a centuries-old complication.

Instead of traditional hands, the hours are displayed on a disk that passes over a semi-circle arch to indicate the minutes. With a quick glance, you can see how much of an hour has gone by without necessarily needing to know the precise minute. This is a highly fluid and poetic manner of depicting the time first seen in the seventeenth century. And now Arnold & Son puts it into a modern wristwatch.
