Watch fans who like to wear history on their timepiece may want to check out a new collection by Arnold and Son.

Entitled the Hornet History Collection, each special watch looks to commemorate a special achievement by the English explorer Captain James Cook, World Tempus reported.

There are three timepieces for watch enthusiasts to choose from, which are presented in a luxurious wooden box, each featuring a patterned dial and a sleek date window towards the five o'clock location.

For one, there is The Landing at Botany Bay in Australia timepiece, which honours the "first recorded encountering of eastern coastline of Australia by a European".

Meanwhile, the choppy seas of Captain Cook's second voyage between 1772 and 1775 are honoured via The Discovery of Antarctica.

Arnold and Son, which first began manufacturing watches in 1764 with the opening of a London workshop, finishes off the range with The Death in Hawaii model.
