    Armin Strom 1 Week? Whataya think

    After people's less than stellar reactions to the Armin Strom Manual Water I was curious what people thought of the much more expensive 1 week water (about 25k).



    Obviously, the power reserve has been increased by two days and a power reserve complication is added in the seconds subdial. It's got dual mainsprings instead of the one in the Manual.





    Oddly I've seen different backs of this movement--this is the best looking shot out there, in other photos the mainsprings are covered up.



    Here's what the back of the ARM09 looks like according to the Armin website:





    Obviously much less exciting than the one in that review. Still very nice, but a big leap away.

    Anyway, what'd you guys think of this one?

    Haha.

    Don't like it at all Citizen. Lovely movement but I really don't like the face (bit like saying, awful looks, nice personality - it never works)

    Nah.
    Never been a huge fan of skeleton watches...... Until.... I saw this. Now, this is the apple of my eye, and I'm afraid that one doesn't even come close for me.

    Nope.
    To my eyes somehow it dosn't "exude" luxury and exclusivity.

    Sorry... no.

    I agree with crownpuller the Sambhare #5 may be my favorite (out of a VERY few) skeleton I have ever laid eyes on. Nothing like a watch from one man's vision and one man's hands.

    Movement and dial is fine. But that case looks like something from a $800 watch, look at the back of the lugs.

    Less than impressed....I would expect better from a Chinese watch.

    He does makes a good attempt to get his name on the watch as many times as Rolex but needs to bunch them up more on the front.
