Armin Strom’s Royal Flush

By Chris Boyle

The odds of a Royal Flush in poker are one in 30,839.  For the four lucky customers who buy Armin Strom’s Tourbillon Royal Flush they will each be one of 1.75 billion (The earth’s population is 7 billion).


Conceptualized by the card playing watchmakers of the Biel/Bienne manufacture, there is one unique watch for each suit of cards:  spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs.


Your Royal Flush is engraved on a second plate visible through the case’s open back with one of the card suits.


Claude Greisler, Director of Armin Strom notes the tourbillon is considered the highest of watch making complications, so between their card games and making haute timepieces developing the tribute piece seemed in line with the company’s style of unique pieces.


Owner Serge Michel notes that as of 2013, all of the house’s 450 watches it produces annually now have in-house movements.  He is anxious to hire more master watchmakers, although he didn’t disclose if poker skill are a requirement.
