Arnold & Son Accentuates Contrast with Two New Nebulas
Built like radiant stars, the Nebula are bursting with light. Created in two case dimensions, they introduce a new color combination, alternating between grey NAC and rose gold, serving to further highlight the striking structure of their skeletonized caliber. The symmetrical elegance of the Nebula collection is entering a new orbit.
Since its creation, Nebula has been a star. Its stellar mechanism, the A&S5201 caliber, is the gravitational force of this collection, giving it its appearance, identity, and strength. Redesigned with a movement whose finishes are more advanced than ever, the Nebula collection continues its expansion.
Viewed from the back, the A&S5201 caliber takes on another dimension. Two large arcs, also treated with NAC, intersect to reveal a second graphic structure, that of the main plate. Highly openworked, it, too, is chamfered and its surface is covered with a signature Arnold & Son pattern known as Rayons de la Gloire.
Like all the movements used by Arnold & Son, the A&S5201 caliber has been entirely developed, manufactured, decorated, assembled, adjusted and cased-up at the manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
This caliber draws on a pair of large barrels and an oscillating frequency of 3 Hz, which delivers a 90-hour power reserve. In addition, its depth of 4.18mm is exceptional for a skeletonized movement, as these types of calibers usually retain a certain thickness in order to compensate for their openworked designs, which typically weaken their structures. Despite this, Arnold & Son’s long manufacture experience has made it possible to imbue the Nebula’s mechanical latticework with extraordinary finesse.
