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

Revered since antiquity, this intensely colourful, fragrant and symbolic flower finds worthy expressive territory in the L.U.C XP 35 mm.
