The watch’s ARM16 caliber features unusual geometric and angular components. Spider-shaped crown wheels visually dominate the dial, complemented by large Arabic numeral hour indications and the 60-second register with the power reserve indicator. Functions include hours, minutes, small seconds and a power reserve indicator.
The watch’s design marks a new era for the watchmaker. ”The time is right for Armin Strom to step out with a stronger aesthetic. We've grown in confidence and are ready to be bolder about our vision and design," explained ARMIN STROM director and chief horologist Claude Greisler.
The watch is a limited edition of 100 pieces and is priced at $24,900.
About Armin Strom
After completing his watchmaking apprenticeship, brand namesake Armin Strom, gained recognition as a successful independent business owner. In 1967, Strom opened his own shop in Burgdorf. Here, he sold and restored timepieces. As his passion evolved, Strom began working on his own creations in the workroom behind his establishment. Strom’s first creation was a gold pocket watch featuring an engraved dial with a polished blue lapis lazuli. His growing popularity in the watchmaking industry allowed Strom to explore different watchmaking techniques and eventually, he settled in the specialty of skeletonizing.
