This series, featuring two highly-visible barrels on its dial, takes on adornments that are inherent to the brand. Here, the difference is hidden in the details. Explanation.


Flashback! In 2010, Armin Strom unveiled its first-ever watch to be equipped with a movement created in its own workshops, the One Week. Stylistically-speaking, this piece stood out with its elaborate, totally-symmetrical scenography. This model also wowed with its performances. Its caliber delivered an impressive seven-day power reserve. This summer, the brand center staged a state-of-the-art upgrade, issued in just 25 pieces, the One Week First Edition. This 2023 vintage champions the model’s remarkable autonomy but it’s also been completely overhauled thanks in particular to a new movement. Dial-side, the architecture adorns a scenography on a par with current-day production where geometrics calls the tune inside the case, which is 41 mm in diameter, 10.6 mm high and crafted in steel this time round. Its ice-blue PVD mainplate and bridges add a touch of light to the relief-style structure.

The ARM21 caliber drives the hour and minute hands adorned with Super-LumiNova® as well as the second hand hovering over an off-centered black dial precisely. This hand-wound movement, assembled using some 194 components, beats at a frequency of 25,200 vibrations an hour versus 2.5 Hz in the previous version. This higher rate ensures better time-keeping performances. And, to manage the energy it develops optimally, it boasts a free-sprung balance and variable-inertia balance wheel. The One Week First Edition is worn on an integrated bracelet fashioned with satin-brushed and polished H-shaped metal links. This choice boosts the watch’s sporty-chic style, making it resolutely in tune with the times.
