  • Catalogue Essay

    - Introduced in 2018, the Arnold & Son Globetrotter dazzles with a large 3D engraving of the Northern Hemisphere that rotates once daily to indicate world time zones on a fixed 24-hour ring. While not a new complication, Arnold & Son's sculptural execution is eye-catching. As with their engraved moonphase Double Hemisphere Perpetual Moon, Arnold & Son takes a traditional world timer and enhances it visually.

    - At 45mm, the lavish engraving makes reading the time zones an artistic delight for horology and geography fans alike. With an independently set hour hand hovering over the engraved oceans and mountains, and an opaline dial with Roman numerals orbiting the polished pivot of the rotating hemisphere, the Globetrotter boldly showcases Arnold & Son's skills in reimagining ornate complications.

    - Preserved in excellent condition with minimal signs of wear, the present Globetrotter exemplifies Arnold and Son's craft in elevating horological artistry.
