The most obvious characteristic of the Arnold & Son Tourbillon is undoubtedly its striking dial architecture. The largely skeletonised dial reveals the complicated inner workings of the timepiece and reveals a design language that primarily bows to perfect symmetry. Bridges, main plate and gear train are freely visible from the front of the watch. Only the hint of a rhombus with polished baton indices divides the optically balanced round and makes it possible to read the exact time. Comparatively short horns and a flattened winding crown make the 46-millimetre-diameter watch easy to wear.
