Arnold & Son

The glorious history of the oldest luxury watches brand Arnold & Son began in the times when the wrist watches still did not exist. In 1764, the boy named John was born in a small English town Cornwall in the family of a watchman. Soon John Arnold became a famous and respectable person among the noble and honorable people in London.

Being a hard-working searcher of the engineering exercises, John Arnold made prominent steps in scientific research of those times. Close friendship between John Arnold and a well-known watchman Abraham-Louis Breguet helped both to find many answers for many miracles in the world of designer watches. Tourbillon was the mystical device that was invented and firstly installed by Abraham-Louis Breguet in the chronometer firstly assembled by John Arnold. 

Among thousands of high end watch designers in Great Britain, John Arnold was the first to assemble chronograph so helped the future high end watches industry to grow up. John Arnold, as many others living during that period in England, was inspired by sea. He implemented his knowledge in the sphere of luxury watches of those times. In 1764, he made his strategic decision to open his shop in the richest street in London that brought him popularity and fame. John Arnold started to produce his luxury watches made of gold. 

After having opened his shop in London, he found his own method for sea length calculation. It was a great advantage and challenge of that time, and it decreased the travel cost. The Royal Navy of England was supplied with chronographs of John Arnold, who arranged the work for many watchmen in the London area.

In 1799, John Arnold died, and his son Roger led the luxury watches business of the family and continued his father's traditions, leading the Arnold & Son watches company to prosperity. The famous watchman Edward John Dent joined the watch company to produce golden designer watches for the British navy, and luxury watches tradition of the family continued. In 1843, the company was bought by Charles Frodsham, a famous watchmaker and investor, who continued famous traditions of luxury watches of Sir John Arnold.
