HM Horses Set Ref. 1LCAP.B04A.C111A

Arnold & Son in honour of the Lunar New Year proudly presents a special limited edition of 28 pairs of watches inspired by the horses depicted in traditional Chinese ink-wash paintings.

The Horse is one of the most powerful symbols in the Chinese zodiac and stands for a wealth of desirable characteristics. Individuals born under this sign, which is symbolic of speed and strength, are reputed to be energetic and independent with a free, unbounded spirit. In honour of the Year of the Horse in the calendar, Arnold & Son has created 28 pairs of watches, each featuring a depiction of the horses often found in traditional Chinese ink wash painting.

Adorning each of the two lacquer dials is a hand-finished miniature painting of two horses, one pair black and grey on white, the other white and grey against a black background. Nuances of tone and shading, from jet black to silvery grey, are achieved by the tiny brushstrokes and texturing gradually to build-up the entire image with an astonishing richness of details. The art of painting miniatures by hand calls for infinite patience and consummate skill. A skill that takes years of concentrated practice to fully master.

The two watches in each pair of this limited edition from Arnold & Son are powered by the A&S1001 calibre, developed, designed and manufactured entirely at Arnold & Son's workshops in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The classical design is underscored by the slim, 18-carat rose gold case, which is also available with an optional diamond-set bezel. The simplicity of the black and white lacquered dials, which have just two hands and a minimalist chapter ring consisting of tiny dots, leaves the stage free for the dynamic miniature depiction of two charging horses. The timepieces are each presented with a high-quality black alligator leather strap.
