One thing I have in common with Arnold & Son’s designer for movements and overall brand aesthetic, Sebastien Chaulmontet, is a love of symmetry. No, not all of the things he designs are perfectly symmetrical – after all, there must be some variety in life – but he tries harder than perhaps anyone else when it comes to both the case and dial of a replica watch, as well as the movement, to achieve aesthetic balance. The Arnold & Son Nebula Replica– which is a new model for 2016 – is all about that the quest to make a movement as symmetrical-looking as possible.
Do a survey of the world’s most popular designs and you’ll find that people are attracted to symmetry – especially bilateral symmetry. With the Nebula, Arnold & Son tries to go beyond that with a movement design that offers a large amount of bilateral symmetry if cut either vertically or horizontally. Of course, it isn’t perfect symmetry, but that isn’t the point. The main idea here is to experiment with this fascinating movement architecture and see how it makes having a skeletonized dial even better. What do you think?
Many forms of movement skeletonization take a non-skeletonized movement and try to cut it up. One of the most popular movements out there that receives this treatment is the humble ETA UNITAS (6497 and 6498) that has seen a large range of techniques to carve it up in artistic ways. Skeletonization started out by actually having to skeletonize something, but more recently movements are being designed from the ground up to be visible. This is what Arnold & Son Replica Watch In Discount has done with many of their movements, including the caliber A&S5101 that exists inside of the Arnold & Son Nebula. One of the less frequently discussed things about Arnold & Son is that despite making less than 1000 replica watches per year, their new models mostly have new movements.
