Yes, together with La Joux Perret (parent company of Arnold & Son). LJP was getting into trouble as they foresaw the grim future with less and less supply of hair spring from Swatch Group. So, Citizen came in and decided to provide hair spring and other essential parts to LJP, while Citizen kept LJP and Arnold & Son as-is...

Thanks for this info Ken! Did LJP buy Arnold & Sons from The British Masters? They also owned Graham (and the smaller production Tompion watches) back in the day. I’m curious where Graham watches have ended up? Cheers, NickO

I believe Citizen bought La Joux Perret which had already bought Arnold & Son from the British company.... Citizen is a very modest company - I repeatedly told them to at least to show "A Citizen Company" on Arnold & Son advertisement, but they did NOT! Ken

Very smart because it wouldn’t enhance the Arnold & Son brand name at all imo.

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece! With the recent announcement of Only Watch 2017, it comes as no surprise to expect a feast of interesting timepieces up for viewing. Typically, most brands ... .
