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
Le Mans Classic is an event of extreme importance for Richard Mille. At each edition, the watch brand unveils a commemorative piece, but its commitment goes far beyond the presentation of a novelty. First of all, Richard Mille is not a mere sponsor but the partner and the official timekeeper of Le Mans Classic. Then, the history of the brand is intimately linked to the automobile event one since Richard Mille has been committed since the very first edition.
