Now in its 25th year, the Monaco Yacht Show is the world’s only event dedicated exclusively to super yachts. Every year, an elite clientele has the opportunity to view, inspect and purchase around 115 of the world’s premier super yacht ranging in length from 25 to 100 meters, including some 40 new launches. Arnold & Son joined its partner in the luxury yacht business, Northrop & Johnson, at the show’s party aboard Starfire, a 54m super yacht. Arnold & Son displayed a selection of its haute horlogerie timepieces aimed specifically at lovers of fine watchmaking.
The Northrop & Johnson party at the Monaco Yacht Show is always the peak of this week dedicated to super yachting. Around 150 guests attended this invitation-only event, which gave Arnold & Son a perfect platform on which to present its timepieces to a selected audience. The brand’s Vice President of Sales, Fabien Dutriaux was also at the event and outlined the advantages of the partnership with Northrop & Johnson:
“The Monaco Yacht Show offers this unique blend of glamour within the truly international super yacht show annual calendar. This is the reason why the most outstanding and innovative super yachts are launched here. The entire community of professional visitors, the ultra high-net-worth individuals and business decision-makers from around the globe gather to the Principality of Monaco every year. This is a great opportunity for Arnold & Son to present and promote its true historical link with the world of navigation at high-sea.”
Arnold & Son’s presence at yacht and super yacht shows such as the Monaco event, but also in Miami, Palm Beach, Singapore and Fort Lauderdale, is an opportunity for the company to highlight its own impressive maritime past. The Instrument Collection was inspired by the timepieces developed when John Arnold and his son Roger focused on chronometry and helped solve the problem of determining longitude at sea.
