With a very similar look to Armin Strom’s Skeleton Pure Water we reviewed here, but featuring the 'Air' titanium case, comes this Armin Strom One Week Configured Unique Piece thanks to the recently launched Armin Strom Watch Configurator. This watch configurating system is not only quite innovative but it also offers hundreds if not thousands of possible combinations. If you can dream it, they can make it.
A simple process that begins with the client choosing the desired movement —a tourbillon, a Gravity with 5-day power reserve, a One Week or a Manual—, type of case and material and then choosing from an array of colors, engravings, finishes and even level of skeletonization for the movement, the unique piece comes to life with your choice of strap and type of buckle. Using a mobile app that is very user friendly, one can virtually step into Armin Strom’s workshop and create a unique looking timepiece within minutes.
The Armin Strom One Week we have here, features the traditional One Week manual wound in-house calibre ARM09-S composed of 146 parts, 34 jewels and which provides a power reserve of 8 days while beating at a frequency of 18,000 vph. With a level of skeletonization just like that on the Skeleton Pure but with blue bridges and a case typically not available on the Skeleton Pure with this type of color combo, this Armin Strom One Week is as unique as it gets.
With maximum skeletonization and with both mainspring barrels fully visible, one can enjoy looking inside the barrels and admiring the mainspring tightening as one winds the watch and the power reserve indicator at 9 o'clock starts moving from red to white.
Rounded out by a dark blue hornback alligator strap with pin buckle, the design of this watch is unique and unlike any of the watches that Armin Strom sells as line items within their different collections.
On the wrist, the Armin Strom One Week Configured Unique Piece wears true to its size and with the most unique and special wrist presence. Wearing a one-off timepiece sure beats anything that is available out there for everyone to have. All it takes is a visit to the Armin Strom Configurator and 'voila'.
