Armin Strom unveils the next generation of its Mirrored Force Resonance Timepiece: A state-of-the-art technological marvel in a strikingly elegant design.
Armin Strom took the watch industry by storm in 2016 when it unveiled the Mirrored Force Resonance, a watch that exploits the physical phenomenon of resonance in an ingenious and unprecedented way. It set a new standard of chronometric precision and regularity by achieving what watchmakers once believed to be impossible.
Revisiting the independent manufacture’s milestone creation in 2016 from a new vantage point, the entirely redesigned Mirrored Force Resonance takes the winning formula of superior chronometric stability and reimagines it using a new, refined design language. From the outside, the case has been redesigned from scratch in more slender proportions, with slimmer, more elegant lugs, as well as a very subtle signature Armin Strom “lip” at 6 o’clock.
The raised sapphire glass box reveals the innovative and truly one-of-a-kind movement from multiple angles and has been redesigned for a more open, three-dimensional look. Most notably, the two balance bridges have been openworked for more visual harmony between the two synchronized balanced wheels and the off-centre dial. The pusher at 2 o’clock allows the two running seconds indicators – which rotate in mirrored clockwise and counter-clockwise motions – to be reset to zero and visually track the state of resonance.
As part of a new tradition at Armin Strom that began with other recent collections, the First Edition of the Mirror Force Resonance is limited to 25 pieces and is made even more special by a number of details that are exclusive to this series. First, the two finger-style bridges between the ratchet wheel and barrels are crafted in white gold. Secondly, the opaline dial has been created in a warm “Black Gold” colour. And finally, the watch comes with a 10-year warranty instead of the usual Armin Strom 5-year warranty.
Commenting on the debut series of the new Mirrored Force Resonance, Serge Michel, founder of Armin Strom, remarked, “The Mirrored Force Resonance has become one of Armin’s Strom’s most evocative creations, and its evolution has been warmly welcomed by our collectors and partners. The enthusiastic reception and high demand for the First Edition of 25 timepieces mean we can’t wait to show you the Manufacture Edition, which will be unveiled in early 2023.”
