Arnold & Son DSTB Limited Edition

A closer look beneath the dial.

Released at BaselWorld last year, this 18k gold Arnold & Son DSTB Limited Edition watch came through the doors of Manhattan Time Service and it’s a real gem when you go beneath the dial.

Housing a DSTB in-house made A&S6003 automatic movement, the words DSTB relate to ‘Dial Side True Beat’; True Beat referencing the second hand ticking rather than sweeping. The watch was brought out to celebrate the brand’s 250th anniversary and limited to just 50 pieces.

The seconds’ mechanism mounted to the front of the dial is a unique Arnold & Son look and it is this distinctive design element which really captures the eye.

When you go beneath the dial there are 229 inner movement components to work on, requiring the expertise of an in-house master watchmaker if it needs servicing or repair.

It is the ticking DSTB sound which caught the attention of renowned watch blogger Ariel Adams from A Blog To Watch. He describes it as: Again, the gearing is designed to give the seconds hands a dead seconds style of ticking, in an off-centered display separate from the hour and minute dial. The seconds hand actually moves across a lovely ring made from a piece of sapphire crystal.”

Watchmaker’s View

What makes this watch interesting? Manhattan Time Service Master Watchmaker Tom Lodowski says it’s the inner workings of the movement, having been raised above the main plate and dial, which really sets it apart.
