Arnold & Son Chronograph True Beat (CTB)

Sometimes referred to as a dead beat seconds, the true beat seconds is a precision function wherein the seconds beat incrementally as opposed to sweeping along the dial allowing for more accurate reading. Arnold & Son has taken the idea to new heights by incorporating the true beat seconds on the same axis as the chronograph seconds hand in the Chronograph True Beat (CTB). The result, when the continually running chronograph hand is started, gives the impression that it can catch up to the true beat seconds hand. However, this never happens since the true beat seconds hand jumps away each second. Arnold & Son’s unique CTB invention is protected by two patents.
