Armin Strom Skeleton Pure (ST15-PW.05 Skeleton Pure Water & RG15-PF.5N Skeleton Pure Fire)

Swiss watch manufacture ARMIN STROM unveils Skeleton Pure, a striking new timepiece that eliminates anything extraneous from the bare caliber and highlights the layered construction of the movement by colorizing the essential components. This timepiece is equipped with the firm’s Calibre ARM09-S, the same movement eloquently rendered in the more classically designed One Week Skeleton, which the Bienne-based independent manufacture released at Baselworld 2014. But this Skeleton has an entirely different look and feel.

The manual-wind, double-barrel movement offers an 8-day power reserve with hours, minutes, small seconds and power reserve indicator. Skeleton Pure will be produced in editions of 100 in ARMIN STROM’s elements of Air (titanium), Earth (black PVD coated stainless steel), Water (stainless steel) and Fire (18k rose gold). The elements will be released in two phases: Skeleton Pure Fire and Water at October’s Salon SIAR in Mexico-City and Skeleton Pure Air and Earth at November’s Salon QP in London.
