Armin Strom Skeleton Pure Earth Mechanical Watch

Armin Strom Skeleton Pure Earth Mechanical Watch


An authentic ode to the mechanical architecture of watch movements, the Skeleton Pure Earth by Armin Strom highlights the particular layout of its parts arranged in layers. The entirely skeletonised Calibre ARM09-S reveals subtle depth effects and contrasts that are accentuated by the black PVD-treated plate. This highly sophisticated mechanical movement not only displays a resolutely contemporary design, but also delivers first-rate performances, including an eight-day power reserve driven by a twin barrel. A perfect alliance between the traditional Swiss art of skeletonisation and futuristic horology, the Skeleton Pure Earth radiates a unique style featuring an harmonious blend of strength and elegance. 100-piece limited edition.
