The Horse is one of the twelve signs in the Chinese zodiac and one of its most revered symbols. To mark the beginning of this much awaited year on 31st January 2014, Arnold & Son proudly presents a special limited edition of 28 pairs of watches inspired by the horses depicted in traditional Chinese ink-wash paintings.
Arnold & Son pays tribute to one of the most powerful symbols in the Chinese zodiac. The horse, representing a wealth of desirable characteristics, is a symbol of speed and strength. Those born in this year are reputed to be energetic and independent with a free, unbounded spirit.
To honor the Year of the Horse, Arnold & Son are creating 28 pairs of watches, each featuring a depiction of the horses often found in traditional Chinese ink wash painting. The watches will be powered by the A&S1001 calibre, which are developed by Arnold & Son in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
The watches will be housed in an 18-carat rose gold case, which will 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.
These are truly unique and beautiful timepieces. With only 28 pairs being produced, these will for sure be at the top of every high-end watch collector’s list. A price has not been set to our knowledge, but we will for sure keep you up to date once we find out.
