Otherwise, if you love watches in celestial bodies or tracking moon phases, this jewelry watch belongs on your wrist. In the meantime, scroll down for more details.
The Golden Heart of Perpetual Moon Obsidian
The golden heart of this luxury watch is golden obsidian: one of the oldest and intriguing stones. Arnold & Son sourced the volcanic material from Mexico in Central America.
From a glimpse, you will understand why obsidian is a perfect choice. One reason is that it contains high levels of silica, which makes the material strong and shiny. The stone owes its unique characteristics to chemical composition and specific crystallization. Besides, its bronze color stretches from the surface into the heart of obsidian. Hence, the name golden heart.
Though the minute hand contains little bronze, the dial still produces glossy effects when the hands and hour-markers reflect. Likewise, they added silver stars to enhance how the watch looks.
Everything about this classy watch catches the eye: starting from how the golden obsidian stone gives the watch a sheen like a 42 mm diameter 18K red gold case. To how the bronze-hued stone dial reflects on the rhodium-plated moon and the sword-shaped markers. Furthermore, it matches the polished white gold hour hand.
Above all, the luxury watch comes with cool shades, giving the stone a contrasting interplay of warmth, cool tones, and reflections. At the same time, Arnold & Son chose a blue alligator leather strap with visible silver-colored stitching. And finally, you have the pin buckle, which features 18-carat red gold (5Na).
