Early 80’s, Fashion Quartz Analogue watches had been the main focus of Arbutus. But in 1998 Arbutus launched its first Automatic Watch series with glorious success. This debut collection was an amalgamation of precision mechanical movement and classic art design. Armed with such great success, Arbutus transited all collection lines to mechanical movements by the end of year 2000.
Year 2005, Arbutus began the tradition of launching an annual “Limited Edition” collection. Significant models include Arbutus’s first Skeleton Tourbillion in 2006 and 18K Rose Gold Diamond Watch with Swiss Made Automatic Chronograph movement in 2008. Year 2008 marked a significant milestone for Arbutus; it collaborated with a mechanical movement supplier to develop Arbutus’s own designs with improved mechanical movements.
