True to its English watchmaking and handcraft heritage, Arnold & Son unveils the TE8 Métiers d'Art II, limited to only eight exclusive timepieces. Inspired by the pocket watches made during the earlier part of John Arnold's life for King George III and the royal court, the latest addition to the Arnold & Son Royal Collection is an eloquent expression of elegance and sophistication in the inimitable English style and demonstrates the brand's traditional prowess in the classical decorative arts.
