    Handmade craftsmanship: Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity Fire

    Swiss manufacture Armin Strom has celebrated the UK launch of a new timepiece they call the Tourbillon Gravity Fire, a tourbillon watch with a micro rotor winding mechanism. Less than a year ago they released their first calibre with a rotating carriage.

    The unveiling took place at Salomons Country Estate in Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent. Guests included Brand Ambassador Max Chilton, Formula 1 driver of the Marussia F1 Team, together with some of Kent’s most affluent movers and shakers.

    On the dial side, the timepiece reveals the two opposites that animate every watch movement: winding and regulation. While the tourbillon mechanism makes regulation more precise by reducing the effect of gravity, the micro rotor harnesses this same power to supply energy to the gear train, thus exploiting both the positive and negative impacts of the Earth’s gravitation. The hands display the time from an off-centre axis.

    We are delighted to launch the new Tourbillon Gravity Fire at such a prestigious occasion. As with all our timepieces, this watch demonstrates the highest level of handmade craftsmanship, which has been the success behind Armin Strom for over 40 years. It is a timepiece that will prove irresistible for collectors who value this level of manufacture.” Serge Michel, owner of Armin Strom

    The brand was established by founder, Armin Strom, 40 years ago. As a Master Skeletoniser, his unique design style created skeletal watches which showed off the hand-finished movement of the watch thereby enabling owners to admire the complex inner workings of their timepiece. This horological design remains central to the company philosophy today.

    The Armin Strom Tourbillon Gravity Fire features the same flame motif inspired engraving, which adorns all Fire timepiece movements, together with an 18ct rose gold case. The new edition will be limited to 50 pieces.
