Armin Strom is set to officially launch its tourbillon Water timepiece at BaselWorld next month, as the brand readies its tourbillon coffret for distribution.
The brand previously launched a coffret of tourbillons based on the four elements of earth, wind, fire and water, describing how it has entered "the highly exclusive club of horologers that develop and produce their own tourbillon movements". It is now set to launch these watches for wider distribution, beginning with the Water.
This new timepiece will be limited to 50 pieces and features the ATC11 calibre with a lever worked in 18ct white gold. The watch also has an assembly that places the balance wheel and seconds pinion on the same axis.
Armin Strom has made skeletonised timepieces somewhat of a trademark, and the Water – and other models in the initial coffret – are designed with open dials and the tourbillon cage at 9 o’clock.
– Calibre ATC11 Manual winding tourbillon
– 10-days power reserve
– 43mm stainless steel case and sapphire crystal on front and case back
