DEETS
An outstanding, convention defying world timer wristwatch, the Globetrotter Day by Arnold and Son is a piece of exaggerated proportions and character, with its pronounced dome of sapphire crystal encasing a three dimensional demi globe which rotates every twenty-four hours, displaying the current time across the northern hemisphere in a unique and inimitable expression of horologic design.

Instantly recognisable at a hundred paces, Globetrotter is an eye catching conversation starter, and while its novel animated display is certainly something of a head turner, it is very much a watch which is a functional and practical partner for the traveller who likes a little individuality.

Encased in stainless steel, and measuring a hefty 45mm across, and just over 17.2mm tall, the Globetrotter is certainly an imposing piece on the wrist, and with a bridge which arcs right across the centre of the display, between the dial and the crystal, it is a watch which makes a lasting impression.

Beneath the rounded mass of sapphire crystal the silver dial features a chapter ring for the minutes and a band of silver opaline with roman numerals for the hours. The local time is displayed by blue pointers with red arrow tips, which protrude from beneath the domed centrepiece on which the northern hemisphere is depicted in a polished, chemically etched land mass, surrounded by blue lacquered ocean.

With no city names printed around the dial the globetrotter breaks with the typical world timer format, instead using a static sapphire crystal ring with 24-hour markings, which encircles the globe feature as it rotates, and so indicating the time relevant to geographical, as opposed to precisely defined, locations.

The settings are adjusted via the crown which has three positions, which simplifies the task of winding, correcting the local hours forward or backward in one hour increments, or setting the precise time through the minute pointer, which also advances the globe.

Beating within, the Globetrotter is powered by the bespoke A&S6002 self winding movement, which is provided by the brand’s sister company La Joux Perret, and which is revealed through the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. The movement itself is decorated with sunray Côtes de Genève stripes on the main plate and perlage on the internal surfaces, while the oscillating weight features deep guilloché engraving. Running at a brisk 28’800 vib/h (4Hz), the movement boasts a minimum of 45 hours of reserve.

An unusual, interesting and highly individual piece for the discerning collector, the Globetrotter by Arnold and Son foregoes the gravitas of precise timing wherever in the world it might be, and replaces it with a little touch of relaxed abandon. A watch for the modern day nomad, it is charming, eccentric and always exclusive.
