Often at weekends, numerous alpha males assemble at various venues around the globe and participate in motorsport events. They explore the limits of grip and performance indulging an inner thirst for adrenaline and a competitive desire for podium glory. The very nature of motor racing is that it is inherently dangerous and necessitates bravery on the part of each participant. Observing a race from an armchair might be safer but doesn’t deliver the true thrill of wheel to wheel competition.
Cars & watches go very well together, we don’t have to explain this to you. A number of major car manufacturers seem to have a collaboration going on with watch brands. Formula 1, Le Mans, Daytona etc are being sponsored by watch brands for a long time as well. So why shouldn’t the famous Gumball 3000 rally be teaming up with a watch manufacturer? One of the coolest independent brands that masters the art of skeletonizing movements and dials, Armin Strom, teams up with Gumball 3000 in 2015. We couldn’t think of a better match ourselves.
Probably the most signature feature of Armin Strom is engraving, and that has everything to do with the brand’s founder and namesake. Armin Strom made his name with his masterful skills as an engraver and is in the Guinness Book of World Records for skeletonizing the smallest watch ever, by hand of course. Last year the company introduced the One Week Skeleton, that featured a fully skeletonized and engraved version of the in-house calibre ARM09-S. It was the beginning of the new Armin Strom Skeleton Pure collection, which was introduced end of last year, and now a unique piece will be auctioned during the Only Watch 2015 auction.
In Armin Strom Skeleton simply no stranger to us, because we’ve seen several times, in several versions: Skull pure water (stainless steel with a blue sports version), the skeleton of pure water and fire (red gold with gray sports edition ) or unique works could only watch in 2015 (stainless steel and black sports). We even show the possibility of your custom Amin Strom provide its customers on this watch. Meanwhile QP 2015 年 walkway running through, we had to make a stop at Armin Strom booth, here is the latest version of pure Armin Strom Skeleton We have found that platinum is now in a new action decoration.
Something we already told you when handling some of the creations of Armin Strom is their capacity to fully expose their movements, where all the technical parts appear through the opened bridges and plates. Skeletonization is a motto for the brand that tends to have, at least, some parts opened – if not the entire movement. The reason for this choice is obvious when you know a bit more about the history of this brand. Mister Armin Strom had always skeletonized his watches and even practiced his talent for third parties. You can have a look on our dedicated page or on their website, all the watches made by Armin Strom have skeletonized parts. This became even truer when, in 2014, the brand launched the Armin Strom One Week Skeleton, followed the next year by a cleaner, less decorated edition, cleverly called Pure.
