Armin Strom - Masterpiece 2 Minute Repeater Resonance

Armin Strom has just announced the Masterpiece 2 Minute Repeater Resonance, the world’s first and only resonance chiming wristwatch.


Two is certainly the key number of this masterpiece: two complications, resonance and minute repeater; two vertically-stacked independent movements; two forms of resonance (oscillators and sound propagation); two independent mainsprings in one barrel; and two development teams:  Armin Strom for the resonance part and Swiss specialist Le Cercle des Horlogers for the repeater. 


Created to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the transformation of Armin Strom in pure manufacture, the Minute Repeater Resonance will be  limited to just 10 exclusive pieces.


As typical of the resonance timepieces by the Swiss brand, all the key elements of the mechanism, including the minute repeater hammers, are visible on the dial side for the joy of the wearer. In order to achieve this result - a big technical challenge - the movements are inverted with the pinions driving the repeater hammers and hour and minutes transversing the two vertically stacked calibers.



When the minute repeater is activated by using the slider on the left side of the case band, the two hand-polished hammers at 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock strike the two three-dimensionally curved gongs that encircle the hour/minute transparent subdial.


At 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock, the two independent regulators - one for each of the two movements - visually balance the two hammers.

The Armin Strom’s patented Resonance Clutch Spring - the result of several years of research and development - is visible between the two balances oscillating at a frequency of 3.5 Hz (25,200 vph).


The resonance physical phenomenon (you can read more about resonance here) not only improves the accuracy (Armin Strom’s laboratory testing has revealed gains in precision of 15-20%) but it also contributes to conserve energy, making it possible to achieve 96 hours of autonomy, also thanks to an innovative single barrel with two independent mainsprings inside, each driving its own movement.

Skeletonized bridges and plates allow visual access through the sapphire crystal dial deep into the movement. All components are finished to the highest level with the beautiful golden balance cocks that support the two oscillating balances standing out for their warm tones and tremblage hand-engraving.


The 47.7 mm  case was crafted from Grade 5 titanium for technical reasons. In fact, thanks to its resistance, its lightness and its low density, this metal offers the best possible chiming characteristics. Additionally, it contributes to makes the watch more comfortable on the wrist thanks to its lightness. The gongs are attached to the case in order to enhance sound amplification.

A specially developed security system maximizes ease-of-use by protecting the minute repeater from accidental damage by blocking operation during time-setting and winding.

Armin Strom informed that after these 10 pieces in Grade 5 titanium, there will be no more editions for this model. Matched to a dark grey alligator strap with a stainless-steel steel double-folding clasp, the Armin Strom Masterpiece 2 Minute Repeater Resonance has a price of Swiss Francs 380,000. arminstrom.com
