As green as a virgin forest, malachite places Double Tourbillon White Gold firmly on the earth. As sparkling as a starry sky, aventurine raises it to the heavens. Harnessing the beauty of stone and glass, these two Arnold & Son pieces, each a one-off, reveal the duality of its double tourbillon. Their spirit is entirely in keeping with the brand’s historic heritage. John Arnold’s marine chronometers sought to tell the local time by observing the stars and the time in a distant location as a universal reference point. Thus, Double Tourbillon White Gold’s sophisticated calibre can follow two distinct time zones to the minute.
In watchmaking language, the tourbillon is a rare construction, and this is even more true of the double tourbillon. Its creation, the choice of its materials and above all its structural approach meet objectives that are at once aesthetic, historical and horological. Double Tourbillon White Gold sits at the crossroads of a number of major paths that Arnold & Son follows consistently and coherently.
In terms of aesthetics, Double Tourbillon White Gold draws on each mineral’s sumptuous appearance. Vibrant green and the broad black brushstrokes painted by nature give malachite a powerfully evocative terrestrial and botanical air. Aventurine glass in the blackest of blues strewn with stars sparkles with life and subtle glints. The off-centre hour dials are crafted in white opal, offering a contrasting softness. Heaven and earth: the symbolism of these materials contributes to the narrative density of Double Tourbillon White Gold.
