With the Arnold & Son Perpetual Moon 41.5 Platinum Celestial Blue the Perpetual Moon series gets another variant. This time the dial features a stellar rays décor with celestial blue PVD treatment. The moon phase window and the depicted moon are highly detailed and treated with super-luminova for a sparkling effect in the dark.
This latest moon phase complication is crafted in a 41.5-millimeter platinum 950 case. The large white mother-of-pearl moon with hand painted shadows and coated with super luminova is the eye-catcher. It is positioned at the upper half of the dial on a midnight blue PVD treated background. And that is encircled by the Big Dipper and Cassiopeia heavenly bodies. These are also hand-painted and coated with super-luminova.
The movement of the Arnold & Son Perpetual Moon 41.5 Platinum Celestial Blue is powered by two barrels
The reason why these constellations are chosen connects to John Arnold’s history as a manufacturer of naval chronometers: these constellations have been used as points of reference during the old ages. The easiest one to identify is the North star which of course shows the North and permits one to calculate the distance between that and the equator. In the ancient days it was the most dependable way to decide the posture of a boat in the middle of the ocean. Back to the watch.
Inside the model is the hand-wound caliber A&S1512 which delivers a power reserve of 90 hours, thanks to two barrels. It has a complete lunar cycle of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds. The precession of the movement provides 122 years of accuracy when regularly wounded. That is with a tolerance of one day between its display and celestial reality. The movement can also be admired through the transparent case back. Furthermore, tthe second moon-phase indicator will be found there.
The Arnold & Son Perpetual Moon 41.5 Platinum Celestial Blue is limited to 38 pieces.
