ARMIN STROM Racing Collection 2014 – Racing Manual & Racing Gravity

For the 2014 Formula 1 season, Swiss luxury watch manufacture ARMIN STROM enhances its Racing Collection by introducing two new calibres made from a Formula 1 engine. ARMIN STROM manufacture has dismantled the engine in order to select the components most suitable physically and aesthetically to transform into watchmaking parts. This approach, with the help and friendly supervision of the Marussia F1 team, particularly driver and brand ambassador Max Chilton, lies behind the collection‘s two new models.

ARMIN STROM Racing Manual
The ARMIN STROM Racing Manual echoes the aesthetic norms that determine the aerodynamics of the race car. The machining of the visible bridges on the dial side reflects the forms, which hold the secrets to Formula 1 performance. This watch is based on calibre AMW11, which has a 5-day power reserve.

ARMIN STROM Racing Gravity
ARMIN STRONG’s Racing Gravity reveals the workings of the various forces that animate the king’s category of motor racing. The transmission is provided by a microrotor mechanism, which activates when gravity opposes a kinetic force. Once the energy is recovered and stored in the barrel, this component transfers the power to the gear-train that controls the measurement of precision and the time display. A time displayed on a dial ring, which allows the view of the mechanical elements of the watch.

ARMIN STROM & Marussia F1 Team
ARMIN STROM has recently announced the continuation of its collaboration with the Marussia F1 Team. ARMIN STROM will be acting as the official timing partner for the Anglo-Russian Formula 1 Team for a fourth consecutive season. Equipped with a Scuderia Ferrari power train, the Marussia F1 Team hopes to improve on their 2013 achievement of the all-important 10th position in the constructors’ championship.

Moreover Marussia F1 driver Max Chilton is the brand ambassador of ARMIN STROM. The exceptionally strong relationship between the Team and the Manufacturer has developed over the past seasons, and this has led to ARMIN STROM creating watches for Baselworld 2014 that incorporate the precision and composites used to build the Marussia F1 Team MR03. These timepieces will be on display from 27 March – 3 April 2014.
