It's Lume, But Not Like You've Seen It Before...

Introducing the Bonehead, named after the marrow-esque pattern of the dial...

The Experimental Collection Concept

Sometimes we have some pretty crazy ideas that take a long time to bring to life. We've decided to pursue these ambitious projects under the "Experimental" heading, because, truth be told, we're not entirely sure what we're going to discover in the process...

Lead times are long (around nine months for Experimental projects) but the buy-in is low (just 10% of the retail price is required to secure your place on the list). Why? Because we want you to come along for the ride. We want you to be by our side as we tackle every step of producing some of the most pioneering watches in the industry.

Everything in the Arcanaut Experimental Collection is produced in very small batches. For our inaugural Experimental releases, we've decided to make 33 pieces of both models. This enables us to plan our production timeline more efficiently and free up more time for creativity.

The Bonehead

The Bonehead concept is one of our premier novelties for 2023. This and the Tiger Sharc series are completely original, but take the Arcanaut mantra of discovery in different directions.

For the Bonehead, we wanted to discover what would happen when we unleashed the Badger with a series of specially created electric blue-lume discs, a batch of aerospace-grade aluminium foam, and a big tub of industrial resin (the cloudy sort — our favourite flavour).

The result was so exciting that the first time James ran into Rob and Anders with a prototype in his possession, he dragged them both into the nearest men's room, locked the door, cut the lights, and presented his piece. Cue a chorus of adoring coos, showering the glowing disc with glory. Needless to say, passers-by were...perturbed.  

The case is unique amongst Arcanauts in that it has received a special "framing" finish, that shows off the outlines of our recognisable ARC II case silhouette. The contrasting polished and blasted surfaces are protected with a scratch-resistant coating so the case stays fresh for longer. 

Questions: Contact Rob (rob@arcanaut.dk) with any queries.
