Armin Strom – Mirrored Force Resonance – First Edition – Trends and Style – WorldTempus

The Mirrored Force Resonance takes on an elegant new form, with a redesigned case, movement and dial incorporating Armin Strom’s unique and chronometrically perfect Resonance technology. New proportions that allow to sublimate this innovative movement.

Armin Strom conquered the watch industry in 2016 with the launch of the Mirrored Force Resonance, a watch that harnessed the physical phenomenon of resonance in an ingenious and unprecedented way. It sets new standards in chronometric precision and regularity, accomplishing what watchmakers previously thought impossible.

Taking a fresh look at the independent Manufacture’s 2016 flagship watch, the completely redesigned Mirrored Force Resonance takes the winning formula of superior chronometric stability and reinvents it as part of a sophisticated new artistic expression. Externally, the case has been completely redesigned to benefit from thinner proportions of 43mm x 11.55mm, more elegant and refined lugs, as well as a very subtle “lip”, Armin Strom’s signature at 6 hours.

On the case back, the raised sapphire crystal allows you to see an innovative and truly unique movement from different angles. A revised design for more openness and three-dimensionality. The two balance bridges have been opened up significantly to achieve better visual harmony between the two synchronized balance wheels and the off-centre dial. The pusher at 2 o’clock allows the two running seconds displays to be reset by rotating the mirror clockwise and counterclockwise and allowing the state of resonance to be visually followed.

The extent of the complete overhaul of the movement is revealed when the watch is turned over. Inspired by the golden age of precise maritime chronometry, the engraved main plate showcases the ins and outs of the Mirrored Force Resonance thanks to positively raised text. The ingenuity of the Resonance is underlined, which has two movements synchronized thanks to energy sources and independent gear trains, emphasizing the symmetry of the movement thanks to the mirror arrangement of the gear trains and open bridges. This open execution also allows the Manufacture Armin Strom to showcase its craftsmanship expertise while highlighting the brand’s history as a preeminent maker of skeleton watches. The wider chamfers of the handcrafted bridges and countersinks, as well as the mix of mirror-polished and satin-finished surfaces, also reflect an exceptional quality that is characteristic of fine watchmaking and this exceptional craftsmanship.

In addition to the architecture and movement revision, other mechanical features have also been updated. Ratchet wheels and pawls are now inspired by pocket watches and create a more homogeneous haptic experience when winding.

Claude Greisler, co-founder and master watchmaker at Armin Strom, said: “The open resonance movement underlines the ingenuity of our patented and unique system. Even more incredible is that we have refined the new Mirrored Force Resonance, paying special attention to the ergonomics and overall proportions of this extraordinary piece.”

An exceptional first series

Respecting a new tradition at Armin Strom recently introduced by other collections, the first edition of the Mirror Force Resonance is limited to 25 pieces. The even more special character of this edition is revealed by some exclusive details of this series. The two finger bridges between the ratchet wheel and the barrels are made of white gold. The opaline dial is designed in “black gold”. Finally, the watch comes with a 10-year warranty instead of Armin Strom’s usual 5-year warranty.

Serge Michel, Founder of Armin Strom, said of the first series of the new Mirrored Force Resonance: “The Mirrored Force Resonance has become one of Armin Strom’s most impressive creations and its development has been warmly welcomed by our collectors and partners. We have felt such an enthusiastic reception and such strong demand for the first edition of 25 that we look forward to presenting the Manufacture Edition, which will be presented in early 2023.”

Armin Strom’s patented, disengageable resonance spring

The Resonance Armin Strom switchable spring makes this possible. Machined from a single piece of steel, the disengageable Resonance spring is designed to transfer energy between the two hairsprings and quickly bring the two balance wheels into resonance. Armin Strom’s latest generation resonance is the fastest and most reliable on the market. It syncs faster than any other clock with resonance.

Thanks to the Resonance spring, which can be switched off, a flexible suspension that connects the two spiral springs to their balance wheels, all Armin Strom Resonance watches are more resistant to shocks or vibrations. Accuracy and consistency are of course the ultimate goals of mechanical watchmaking, and resonance plays a crucial role in helping these exceptional timepieces tell time consistently over days, weeks and months. Armin Strom’s goal is a watch that the owner knows will tell the exact time, day after day.

The releasable Resonance spring is made of steel and offers smoother performance than high-tech materials like silicone. In addition, it tolerates temperature fluctuations very well. The Resonance releasable spring will stand the test of time thanks to the use of time-tested materials and modern methods that increase its durability and ease of maintenance. In other words, the Zeitgeist is made to last.
