JOHN ARNOLD: born in Bodmin, Cornwall in 1736, the son of a watchmaker. He began young as an apprentice to his father and went on to become a partner. However, an argument saw the ending of their partnership and young Arnold left the country initially to work in The Hague, Holland. In 1764 he constructed the smallest-ever repeating and striking watch, which was set into a ring and presented to King George III as a gift.
