In addition to the dual tourbillon escapement and dual disc / dual time indication, the watch is exceptionally accurate; it not only provides the hours and minutes of local time, but also the hours and minutes of the second time zone that can be set independently. The wearer can thus obtain a precise time zone with a time difference of only one quarter of an hour or half an hour from Greenwich Mean Time. The dual barrel provides an extremely long 90-hour power reserve.
The typical ARNOLD & SON watch style is very meticulous and features superior fine watchmaking finishing. The dial is symmetrical and deep on the side of the watch. The dual time display is equipped with two domed white lacquered dials, one at 12 o’clock and the other at 6 o’clock. The two tourbillon escapements are coordinated and balanced at 3 and 9 o’clock, and they sit on the 18K red gold bridge, as if floating on the dial. These lacquered dual dials and double tourbillon escapements are decorated with ornate vertical Geneva stripe background stripe plates, and the other two crowns for setting local time and home time are at 2 and 8 o’clock. Both mainsprings are set with a crown at 2 o’clock.
DTE’s 18K red gold case has a diameter of 43.5 mm. The white dial (with Roman numerals and Arabic numerals) is equipped with blue steel hour and minute hands. The transparent sapphire crystal on the back of the watch allows the ornate nickel-silver movement to be seen at a glance. In short, this masterpiece with both tradition and innovation, technology and elegance shows that ARNOLD & SON’s watchmaking realm has reached a higher level and watchmaking achievements have reached a new level.
