Armin Strom has unveiled its first collection of tourbillion timepieces, made with a new calibre – the ATC11.
The brand said it has long sought to create its first in-house tourbillion timepieces, with the aim of joining “a long tradition of watchmaking Manufactures that produce unique horological creations”.
The tourbillon can be seen situated at 9 o’clock of the new ATC11 calibre models, while the manual-winding calibre has a 10-day power reserve and is driven by two barrels, with a winding mechanism visible from the dial side.
The Biel-based manufacturer has been showing off the tourbillons, whisking them off on a world tour. It will present what it has dubbed a “coffret tourbillon” during the tour, comprised of four one-off watches based on the elements of earth, fire, water and air. A different timepiece will be celebrate at each stop, with the Earth model launched at the foothills of the Bernese Alps, in Interlaken.
The next stages of the tour are already scheduled with the Fire launch due to take place in Dubai, Air among the soaring skyscrapers of Singapore and Water on the shores of the pacific ocean in Los Angeles.
