An exclusive club: ARMIN Strom Tourbillon Water
Biel-based ARMIN Strom went on a tour with a tourbillon watch - or four of them to be exact - last October, but now the Tourbillon Water reaches the market with just 50 pieces available for an extremely limited edition watch.
The Manufacture joins the highly exclusive club of horologers that develop and produce their own tourbillon movements. The tourbillon of the new ATC11 calibre is distinguished by a lever worked in 18ct white gold and an assembly that places the balance wheel and seconds pinion on the same axis.
A hallmark of the Tourbillon Collection is the exposed, intricate inner mechanics. The brand has promoted modern forms of skeletonising, with designs integrated from the early stages of the calibre before being entirely crafted by hand in the Manufacture.
The ARMIN Tourbillon Collection, based on the elements Earth, Fire, Water and Air, is said to pay testament to the Manufacture’s full spectrum of watchmaking skills.
From 25th October to 15th November 2012, the Swiss brand owners jetted off on a world tour to present the Brand’s new ATC11 tourbillon movement. At presentations in Interlaken, Dubai, Singapore and Los Angeles, four different timepieces were unveiled, each exceptionally decorated and enclosed within a ‘Coffret Tourbillon’, limited to four editions.
