Armin Strom – ARMIN Racing Chronograph

Swiss watch manufacture Armin Strom presents their latest timepiece to celebrate its association with the Marussia Virgin Racing F1 team. The new ARMIN Racing Chronograph will be the official watch for the racing team’s mechanics and development staff. The titanium case of 44.40mm diameter with matt black PVD coating is impressive and easily noticeable.

Components used in the manufacturing of this timepiece are created with the materials used in racing cars. Date indicator is brilliantly positioned at 9’o clock. The circles around the various indications on the dial, highlighted in bright red, serve as a clear reminder to mechanical sports enthusiasts of the efforts exerted by brake discs during a Sunday Grand Prix.
The ARMIN Racing Chronograph was developed with a deep concern to achieve reliability in all tests and devote particular attention to the component finishing and decoration visible through the case back. This care and a passion for detail have always constituted the driving force of master watchmaker Armin Strom and his Brand. The ARMIN Racing Chronograph with automatic winding is available in limited edition series of 500 pieces.
