At Polo, we do not only offer the most prestigious brands in the watch and jewellery industry, but we also offer winning brands such as Arnold & Son which won the “Best Design Watch 2019” for its Nebula 38 series at the annual Watches & Jewellery of the Year Awards. This annual prestigious event in Dubai is organised to recognise the region’s most celebrated creations.
Arnold & Son reinterprets its emblematic, symmetrical skeleton Nebula in new proportions. Its gold case has been reinvented in a 38 mm diameter, magnifying the hypnotic micro-mechanical spectacle of the hand-wound movement.
In addition to the careful attention to equilibrium, the powerful allure of the Nebula also derives from the calculated proportions and ratios of diameter versus height, size and placement of every gear and wheel. Rather than being an assembly of disparate components – case, dial, and movement – Nebula was designed from the ground up to be completely holistic, with all components blending harmoniously into one. For instance, no less than ten bridges of this complex calibre form the dial.
ABOUT THE AWARD: The Middle East Watch and Jewellery of the Year Awards is a pioneering concept initiated and implemented by Arabian Watches & Jewellery Magazine. The Middle East Watch & Jewellery of the Year Awards were held on 17th November 2019 at MusicHall, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai.
Themed “Power of the past – Force of the future” this well-attended event, had over 350 guests from all over the world, amongst whom was H.E. Massimo Baggi, Ambassador of Switzerland to the UAE and Kingdom of Bahrain, executive brand representatives, collectors, retailers, industry leaders and socialites.
The nominated brands for the Best Design Watch in 2019 were judged by a distinguished panel of experts including collectors HE Sheikh Mohamed Bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, Ahmed Al Yousuf, Yousef Al Nowais and Sotheby’s Specialist Sophie Stevens amongst others, and results were independently audited by DLA Piper.
Polo celebrates with Arnold & Son and is proud to be the official retailer of this prestigious brand.
