Hands-On: The Arnold & Son Globetrotter

Hands-On: The Arnold & Son Globetrotter

Turning the watch over, you'll find the Caliber A&S6022 movement, which is new for the manufacture It's a big movement that fills out the watch (38mm in diameter all on its own) and there's a full winding rotor that's darkened and engraved with a geometric motif One important thing about this movement is that it was engineered to have three crown positions to make setting the worldtime complication easier.

There's one for hand-winding the watch, should you be inclined to do so, one for jumping the hour hand in one-hour increments, and one for moving the hands as usual along with the hemisphere.  The finishing is exactly what you'd expect from Arnold & Son, with radiating Côtes de Genève on the bridges, snailing and sunburst finishes on the wheels, and a little beveling too on some of the bridge edges It's certainly above average, but put up against the handiwork on .
