The Discrete Muscles of the Arnold & Son HMS1
The Arnold & Son HMS1 isn’t precisely new, anyway after some turbulance inside the brand it would seem that they are currently prepared to great ahead at max throttle. With the “re-launch” of the HMS1 and other great watches I’m exceptionally intrigued to study this brand.
The HMS1 is an exceptionally exquisite dress watch that combines its exemplary looks with a contemporary size of 40 mm. Similarly great is what’s ‘under the hood’ as the force source is an extra-meager manual breeze development with no less then 80 hours of force reserve!
The new HMS1 increments come as restricted versions in either hardened steel, rose gold or white gold and all component the amazing development, type A&S 1001. This select Arnold & Son development is a hand-wound, 21 gems, development that measure 30 mm in width and simply 2.7 mm in tallness! Indeed… exceptionally slight and afterward to consider it’s a genuine force to be reckoned with conveying 80 hours of force reserve!
In request to aquire enough force, type A&S 1001 has two origin barrels. Having two barrels gives not just the great measure of force for 80 hours of self-governance, however more significant it offers a more steady progression of force and accordingly a more consistent power that bring about improved accuracy.
The spans are rhodium treated nickel-silver (which is another name for German silver that is just utilized by the top brands). Aside from the development utilized in the treated steel models; these component a dark covered development as demonstrated on the photograph above. The completion is noteworthy, particularly considering the value level, as it features manually chamfered and cleaned edges, roundabout graining on the primary plate and Côtes de Genève adornment on the scaffolds and obviously blued screws (with the exception of the dark covered development, which doesn’t include the blued screws).
The HMS1 was at that point accessible in rose gold and white gold and now a few variants are added to the assortment. First there is the new rose gold HMS1 expansion that includes a strikingly excellent athracite dial with sunray finish. It’s restricted to 250 pieces, similar to the rose gold forms with creme and dark dial that were at that point in the collection.
For those looking to spent a less dollars/euros there are additionally two forms in tempered steel (two models in the center). One with a white dial and one with a similar amazing anthracite dial as on the rose gold version, except the hour markers currently coordinate the shade of the treated steel case. The two forms are restricted to 250 pieces each and I can’t help thinking about how quick these will be sold, particularly on the off chance that you consider the cost is around $10,000 USD. For what you get, this is a generally excellent price!
Last however not least there’s the white gold rendition highlighting a staggering silver dial, that will come as a restricted version of 100 pieces.
The cost of the distinctive version:
- HMS1 in rose gold with anthracite dial: $15,165
- HMS1 in stainless steel with a white dial comes at a cost of $9,885 and with an anthracite dial the cost is $10,095
- HMS1 in white gold with silver dial: $16,640
