The prominent watchmaker Armin Strom has recently launched its new One Week Earth watch collection, which encapsulates the mastery of the brand’s specialists. The collection is built from four timepieces: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Each interpretation has been issued in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
Inside the powerful Armin Strom watches from the One Week Earth collection there beats a manually-wound ARM09 calibre movement, developed and assembled from A to Z in the brand’s ateliers. Composed of 146 individual parts and adorned with 34 jewels, it runs at the rate of 18,000 vibrations per hour.
The movement provides a 7-day power reserve. The richness of this mechanism is accentuated by its partially engraved, chamfered and hand-polished surface. The movement serves to indicate hours, minutes, seconds, as well as power reserve.
All the technical treasures are enclosed in a 43.4 mm case, sculptured in titanium or stainless steel with or without 18K pink gold or black PVD treatment. On the dial side the case is armed with a sapphire crystal, which features a double-sided anti-glare coating.
Embraced by the case is a black three-part dial. It demonstrates a power reserve indicator and small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. The display also exhibits off-center hours and minutes.
The dial is highlighted by visible crown wheels.
The new Armin Strom One Week Earth watches are presented on a hand-stitched black hornback alligator leather strap, which terminates in a buckle. The timepieces are 50-meter water-resistant.
The collection is expected to be unveiled at Baselworld 2010.
