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 the dial it’s definitely not the most visually exciting part of this watch.
