Armin Strom Tourbillon Skeleton Earth Mechanical Hand-wound Watch

Armin Strom Tourbillon Skeleton Earth Mechanical Hand-wound Watch
Introducing a new rendition of Armin Strom's aesthetic inspiration. True to a now established principle, the Tourbillon Skeleton collection embraces the theme of the four elements. A first version in natural steel with blue accents was named Water. A second, in pink gold and brown tones, answered to the name of Fire.

Another in lighter titanium took the name of Air. The version in black PVD-treated steel is known as Earth. At the same time, the Biel-based watchmaker demonstrates the skeletonwork in which it excels. Thus the Tourbillon Skeleton Earth accentuates its structure through extensive skeletonisation of the ATC11-S calibre. This exclusive in-house movement integrates a tourbillon regulator whose components are also skeletonised. The prowess lies in this mastery of technique, with a movement that delivers a full 10 days of power reserve, but also in the spectacular sight enclosed within the 43.40-mm black case.
