The Legacy of John Arnold

Born in Cornwall, England in 1736, John Arnold was a watchmaking legend in his own time.

After his first apprenticeship, Arnold opened a workshop in London. One of his first clients was William McGuire, a renowned watch connoisseur, who tasked Arnold with the daunting repair of his repeating watch. After he successfully restored McGuire’s watch, Arnold nearly immediately gained recognition as a talented watchmaker.

In 1764, Arnold presented the smallest repeating watch to King George III. With this marvel—presented to the royal court, no less—Arnold’s renown as one of the day’s most innovative watchmakers soared. Arnold is also credited with developing the very first chronometer, a distinct title reserved for exceptionally precise timepieces and a designation still used today.

Always Innovating

Arnold & Son develop and produce their own movements entirely in-house. Even more impressive, the Swiss manufacturer introduces at least two wholly new movements every year and designs a new movement for every single model they release. This exceptional achievement pushes Arnold & Son onto the same competitive level as some of the world’s biggest watch manufacturers.
