Arnold & Son: “Autonomy in a group is possible”

Arnold & Son, launched more than 25 years ago under the name of British watchmaker John Arnold, and backed by the renowned La Joux-Perret manufacture, is seeking its rightful place within the inner circle of Haute Horlogerie. It has just established a presence on the Chinese market and found a new manager in the person of Bertrand Savary, who brings with him considerable experience in the field. He shares with us his ambitions for Arnold & Son and its sister brand Angelus.


espite the high quality of its output – it is backed by the renowned La Joux-Perret manufacture within the Citizen Group – Arnold & Son has not yet found the commercial success to which it aspires. The increasing polarisation in the desirability of watch brands in recent years is certainly one explanation, with a few rare Haute Horlogerie brands monopolising the attention of collectors. And resurrecting an ancient name, however prestigious it may be, remains an exercise fraught with difficulties.
