The HM Flower Special Editions from Arnold & Son will appeal
to women who appreciate finest-quality watchmaking with beautiful
design. Each of the four models in the series depicts a
hand-painted miniature of a flower in full bloom, the rich, deep
colours set off to perfection by the understatement of the dial in
white mother-of-pearl. The exclusive nature of these four wonderful
references is underscored by their limitation to just eight
examples of each model.
The models comprising the HM Flower Special Editions from Arnold
& Son were created to appeal to feminine sensibilities.
Available in four distinctive references, the special editions each
celebrate a different flower: a magenta-coloured orchid, yellow and
purple irises, and a wonderful orange lily. Each of the flowers is
depicted in a hand-painted miniature, executed with exquisite
delicacy of touch and featuring fine details that evoke the depth
and texture of the blossom.
The expertly applied layers of paint and nuances of colour
create a breathtaking sense of three-dimensional depth. The art of
hand-painting miniatures takes many years of concentrated practice
to perfect, and these exquisite flowers presented our specialists
with an ideal opportunity to showcase their skills. The
sumptuousness of the flowers is a counterpoint to the simplicity of
the white mother-of-pearl dial, which shimmers entrancingly with
the play of light. It is enhanced by baton-style hands that show
only the hours and minutes, and the clearly defined chapter ring
with its modest dot indices.
Concealed inside the case is the A&S1001 movement,
manufactured entirely in-house, withHaute Horlogeriefinishing. It
has twin barrels, which generate a 90-hour power reserve and
guarantee more constant force, and which in turn provides a more
constant rate and greater accuracy. All the plates and bridges in
the movement are hand-chamfered and decorated: further testimony to
the traditional craftsmanship upheld by Arnold & Son throughout
its long history.
The HM Flower edition is limited to just eight examples of each
model. If desired, the watch is available with or without a
