Arnold & Son was delighted to once again collaborate with our luxury partner Northrop & Johnson at the 2015 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach. ABMB is the center of the art world each December, and this year was no exception. As the elements of the art world collide, various events took place throughout Miami. Elite evening affairs, luxury cocktail parties and hip shows could be discovered in every corner of the city.
On Wednesday, December 2, Arnold & Son presented their collection of luxury timepieces at an art-filled evening on board Northrop & Johnson’s 143-foot (43.59m) Van Mill luxury superyacht STARSHIP. Also participating in the evening were Global Luxury Partners Aston Martin, along with sponsors Embraer and The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Sunny Isles Beach. DJ Xio, accompanied by a saxophone player, provided the entertainment and wine, champagne and canapés were served. Work from the celebrated songwriter and artist Bernie Taupin was featured at the event, courtesy of Julie Keyes and Mark Borghi Fine Art.
Guests included Lewis Brinson who tried on Arnold & Son timepieces and learned about the manufacture while enjoying the electric atmosphere of the event. Of particular interest was the iconic Time Pyramid, both in the original gold version, as well as the new Time Pyramid guilloché.
The 2015 edition of the show welcomed more than 73,000 international visitors, including artists, collectors, gallerists, curators and art enthusiasts. In addition to viewing the works, art talks were held throughout the duration of the event. Talks and panel discussions help the audiences deepen their knowledge of art, the art world, the market and further beyond. The highest caliber artwork will be on display at the main exhibition hall, while artwork and performances will be on display at nearby beaches, at Collins Park and at SoundScape Park.
