About Arnold & Son Watches
John Arnold was born in 1736 in Cornwall and he was the son of a watchmaker. This fact likely inspired him to continue in the same line of work. Arnold was a talented scholar and craftsman and decided to leave England to go to the Netherlands when he was 19 after he finished his watch-matching apprenticeship. After 2 years, he went back to England one of the most well-known watchmakers in London’s Strand.
Arnold rapidly gained fame when he presented King George III with the smallest repeating watch. He was one of the most innovative watchmakers of his time and held patents for the helical balance spring, bimetallic balance and detent escapement. The ‘No. 36’ watch was the first piece to be called a chronometer – a term used to describe the most precise timepieces.
Arnold was also instrumental in addressing the problem of determining longitude and he won several awards and grants from the British Parliament. It has been told that many famous explorers used Arnold’s timepieces on their voyages, particularly on voyages that helped establish the East India Company. In 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte personally gave the Observatory of Milan an Arnold clock.
