With summer still in full swing, there is no better time to indulge in a great water watch, especially when that watch is the Special Edition Armin Strom Gravity Sailing piece. Created in honor of the Armin Strom Sailing Team’s success in the 2016 Great Cup 32 Series, the watch’s micro rotor is visible from the dial side of the watch, as are wheels and gears of the movement.
The first piece in the 32-piece line went to the Team’s Skipper, Flavio Marazzi. The Limited Edition Gravity Sailing watch features a striking black and orange dial and strap to recall the catamaran and its sail. The watch is powered by the Manufacture-made Armin Strom Caliber AMR13. The automatic watch offers 5 days of power reserve, small seconds and off-center time indications. The 171-part movement has a single going barrel and escape wheel and pallets made of gold with hardened functional areas. The plates and bridges are meticulously hand finished and decorated.
The watch is crafted with a stainless steel PVD black case, sapphire crystal and caseback with antireflective treatment and is water resistant to 50 meters. It is sold with a black alligator strap and an additional black rubber strap. With all of these bells and whistles, the watch retails for an amazing price of just under $14,500.
The final races in the series conclude in Marseille, France, on October 13-16.
