DETAILS

With its Globetrotter Gold, Arnold & Son has chosen to refine the aesthetics of this major piece in a way that affirms its elegance and modernity. The lands seen on the surface are sculpted precisely and, together with the deep, hand-painted seas, they serve as a backdrop to the world time display. Overhanging these is an arch that fixes their rotation. In shades of blue, Arnold & Son pays a chromatic tribute to John Arnold's marine chronometers, which equipped English naval ships in the 18th century.

The appliqué indexes on two planes are faceted in rose gold and painted in Super-LumiNova. The bottom part of the dial, which surrounds the world map, has a subtle sunlit finish in shades of blue, and the ring showing universal time is in transparent sapphire. Local times are therefore read by the red hands pointing to the gold indexes. World times are identified by visualizing an imaginary longitude from the ruby in the central bridge to the 24-hour sapphire ring.

The oceans are hand-painted with several coats of blue-pigmented lacquer enriched with pearlescent powder to bestow exceptional depth and shine. The coastlines are lighter on the blue color scale with added Super-LumiNova, so that they stand out at night and further accentuate the relief of this small piece of manual craftsmanship.
