Between the 18th and 19th century, Arnold & Son made a name for itself by creating some of the most precise marine chronometers of the epoch, which were used not just to tell the time, but as navigational instruments to determine longitude and sail safely from one location to another. Arnold & Son chronometers have taken part in extraordinary voyages, including James Cook voyages to the Pacific Ocean.
As have the needs of the modern traveler, Arnold & Son has created a timepiece for the modern-day navigator, always on the move from one time zone to the next: The Globetrotter. The Globetrotter features a three-position crown system. The first position is used to manually wind the movement, the second position sets the local time in one-hour increments, and the final position is used to set the hour and minute hands and the world-time. The Globetrotter features one of the world’s largest rotating 3D world-time display on a wristwatch.
