Coinciding with its third season as official timing partner of the Marussia F1 Team, watch manufacturer Armin Strom has released two limited series RACING TOURBILLON models.
The distinctive red elox-coated and skeletonised bridges of its own in-house manufactured ATC11-MR tourbillon movement consist of an aluminium alloy, produced from components of an original Marussia F1 Team – F1 car.
The beauty of the hand-decorated movement, a brand characteristic of Armin Strom collections, can be admired through the sapphire crystal front and back, and pays testament to the manufacturer’s full spectrum of watchmaking skills.
