Description

This remarkable time instrument is as ingenious as atypical. The great innovation of the imposing Dead Beat is the combination of the advanced technique of a tourbillon with a unique dead beat central grand second. This revolutionary characteristic enables precision in time reading as it was used by John Arnold and Royal Navy navigators.

The dead beat mechanism held by a central bridge in a distinctive Celtic Axe shape is a pure English style construction reflecting a deep concern for British heritage perpetuation.

Adding a tourbillon makes the link between Arnold's initiatory skills and modern times technique.

This best quality tourbillon is a remarkable tribute to John Arnold's former achievement especially his famous marine chronometer.
