Luxury watch maker Arnold and Son had decided to expand it's Royal collection even further, as they bring one of the world's largest moon-phase tracker based timepieces on the market, the perpetual Moon. Though last month, they had come with the surprise of the Time Pyramid watch, hence this month's master stroke is the HM Perpetual Moon watch, which is in fact a tribute to the best creations by John Arnold during the early phase of his watch making career, including those he made for King George III and the royal court. The 'Royal Collection' as the special series has been called, is a demonstration of how the Arnold & Son brand has mastered it's art of watch making, and used elements of classic horological art in the DNA.
The HM Perpetual Moon watch is a 42mm wide stainless steel case timepiece, with the additional choice of rose gold for the casing. There is an Arnold & Son 1512 hand wound mechanical movement fixed beneath the black guilloche dial, which features the large moon-phase tracking plate made from crafted silver. One can opt for either a blue or cream colored dial, depending upon the perfect combination chosen. The movement has more than 27 jewels making up the mechanical structure, which features a double barrel design to give the whole watch movement, 80 hours of power reserve. The main genius of the movement is the deviation from moon-phase tracking by a single day, only once in 122 years.
If that doesn't satiate the hunger of the horological collector, there is a 2nd moon-phase tracker on the rear of the watch, which bears a transparent design, with only the sapphire crystal covering on the outside. One can check and set the watch for more accurate reading on this special dial. The strap of the watch is a hand-stitched alligator leather in brown or black shade of choosing.
