A few months after the initial release of the Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity Fire, the manufacture launched the remainder of the Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity collection this past week at Baselworld 2014. The Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity reveals on the dial side the two opposites which animate every watch movement: winding mechanism and regulation. While the ingenious tourbillon mechanism ensures the most accurate possible regulation by diminishing the effects of gravity, the microrotor integrated in the calibre harnesses this same power to supply energy to the gear train. The hands display the time from a decentred axis, exploiting both the positive and negative impacts of the Earth’s gravitation. Together with the Fire —18K rose gold— element available since December 2013, the Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity is now also available in the Water —stainless steel—, Air —titanium— and Earth —stainless steel PVD black— versions, with decorations based on the theme of the elements, which enhance calibre ATM13.
The new Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity Earth features a PVD stainless steel case measuring 43.4 mm in diameter and 13 mm in thickness. The watch features a black dial ring with founded appliques and is delivered on a black alligator hornback strap and an additional interchangeable rubber strap. This exceptional timepiece is powered by the Armin Strom automatic Calibre ATM13 composed of 197 parts, 26 jewels, a dial side microrotor and single going barrel and which provides a power reserve of an outstanding 110 hours —almost five days— when fully wound. The calibre is fully visible via the skeletonized dial and the display case back.
