Arnold & Son emphasizes the strong connection between horology and astrology with its limited edition model Luna Magna.
The Volume of the Moon:
In a starry sky, a large moon alternates between light and dark as it moves through its phases. Here, Arnold & Son presents its first three-dimensional moon made of marble and aventurine. Showcased on an aventurine glass dial, the moon changes majestically and with astronomical precision. It is the largest rotating moon ever built into a wristwatch, and a creation that benefits from the first-class watchmaking and decorative techniques of the Arnold & Son Manufacture.
Luna Magna features Arnold & Son’s first three-dimensional moon. With this original timepiece, the Swiss watchmaker with English roots aims to make a lasting impression by presenting the largest rotating moon ever created in relief for a wristwatch. Beneath an off-centered dial at 12 o’clock, which constitutes one of the house’s aesthetic signatures, Arnold & Son has placed a rotating sphere that accurately represents the appearance of the quarters of the moon against a starry backdrop that is more dazzling than a midsummer night sky.
This model comes with a case designed with a diameter of 44mm and a thickness of 15.90mm. The case, which is a candidate to be the target of curious glances, is made of 18K rose gold. There is a double AR-coated and domed sapphire crystal in the front of the 30 meters water-resistant case. The sapphire crystal display case back at the rear of the reveals the magnificent movement decorated according to Arnold & Son standards.
The Moon Phase indicator, is a work of art. The miniature Moon figure, showing the phases of the Moon, resembles a small marble with its 12mm diameter. While the part representing the dark surface of the Moon is produced from Aventurine, the part showing the other side is produced from marble.
Hand-wound Caliber A&S1021, designed and produced in-house, operates at a frequency of 3Hz. The movement, which fascinates with its decorations as much as its engineering, offers a solid 90-hour power reserve when fully wound, despite the off-center time display sub-dial and the marble/stone mixed three-dimensional Moon Phase display.
