Swiss watchmaker Arnold & Son has made a remarkably ambitious tourbillon timepiece. The koi-themed watch is an artful display of the brand’s craftsmanship and dedication to detail. For one, the lotus flowers inside the dial are all hand-sculpted and hand-painted. The light-blue, yellow and green shades are carefully placed to deliver a serene imagery. The carp are also hand-painted — one is of the orange variety while the other is more of a light-blue hue. They’re displayed swimming through the three-dimensional lotus.

The dial is delicately crafted from mother-of-pearl which displays the flying tourbillon — it’s 32mm in diameter, 2,97mm in height, has 90 hours power reserve and contains 29 jewels. To further explain the “flying” aspect, the movement actually “only has a lower carriage bridge” the brand points out. The top is not held in place and is also a bit off-centered for a more dynamic view. The movement is unaffected regardless of the millimeters of height saved. Ultimately, the picturesque combination of the scene, dial and movement all make for a striking presentation.
