Armin Strom has been strongly involved with sports racing through its sponsorship in Formula 1 and Extreme Sailing. Shared values such as precision, innovation and technology make up the front-line focus. With the new ARMIN Racing Carbon, a watch has emerged that gives full expression to this partnership.
In order to allow the integrated carbon components maximum visibility, the decision was taken to forego extra functions with the new ARM12 Manufacture caliber. The ARMIN Racing Carbon is available in a limited series of 50 pieces and immediately expands the ARMIN Racing Collection.
