Armin Strom Orbit First Edition | LE25
2022 GPHG Official Nomination "Mechanical Exception"
The limited edition Armin Strom Orbit reinvents the most ubiquitous horological complication with the world’s first date displayed on a bezel. The date is driven by the unique column-wheel date complication, that can be activated and deactivated with the push of a button. A large central hand with a red “A” tip for Armin indicates the date on the black ceramic bezel which makes up the sporty look of the watch. Housed in a 43 mm stainless-steel case and paired with an integrated steel bracelet, the design of the Orbit allows for the technical prowess of the unique column-wheel date complication as well as the micro-rotor mechanism and equal force barrel to take center stage, all while adding a sporty allure.
This first edition is limited to 25 pieces worldwide.
Entirely conceived, developed and built by the Armin Strom manufacture, the unique complication has been dubbed the “Column-Wheel Date”. As its name implies, the column-wheel drives the date mechanism, which is visible from the dial side. This system, typically found in chronograph mechanisms, enhances the date indicator’s stability and performance while also providing a satisfying and reassuring tactile experience when engaging and
disengaging the date function.
