Arnold & Son was a preferred supplier of marine
chronometers to the Royal Navy. Thanks to their precision, the
company's instruments were indispensable as a means of determining
longitude reliably at sea and accompanied many a captain and
explorer on their voyages of discovery.
Among them was Captain James Cook, one of the finest navigators
and explorers of his era, whose three voyages to the Pacific Ocean
are commemorated in glorious full-colour, hand-finished miniatures
on the dials of these limited-edition (25) sets of three
timepieces. The perfect traveller's watch, they feature indicators
for two time zones (including half or quarter time zones), a big
date display and a symmetrically ordered crown and pushpieces.
