Tightly connected to the world of races as the official timing partner of the Marussia F1 Team, Armin Strom presented a new model for its Racing Collection.
A limited edition of just two pieces, the Racing Tourbillon houses a hand-decorated movement whose red elox-coated and skeletonised bridges are made of an aluminium alloy produced from components of an original Marussia F1 car.
Elox is an aluminium oxide coating which offers excellent resistance to corrosion. When elox is applied, the surface of the base material is converted into aluminium oxide. Since two thirds of the coating penetrates into the base material, the coating has a minimal impact on total thickness.
The hand-wound ATC11-MR tourbillon movement is visible through the sapphire crystal front and back. Thanks to the double spring barrels, the watch offers a remarkable power reserve of 10 days.
The titanium PVD black case has a diameter of 43.40 mm.
The Racing Tourbillon is delivered with a black alligator strap and double-fold clasp as well as an additional black rubber strap.
