Armin Strom’s Edge Double Barrel, the first model in the brand’s new Edge collection, is now available in 18k rose gold.
Introduced in March at the 2016 BaselWorld, manual-wind Edge Double Barrel is powered by an innovative new Armin Strom movement housed in the 46.80mm case. The ARM16 caliber is composed of unusual polygon and angular-shaped components. The large case size deepens the sense of dimensionality of the open-worked movement, which is visible from the front and back of the timepiece. The hand-beveled bridges contrast with a cross-grinding surface decoration, adding to the watch’s industrial appearance. Altogether, the mechanical elements and design create a captivating aesthetic.
A close look reveals that Mr. Edge, official ambassador of the collection, is composed of many of the same individual components as the ARM16 movement. He’s the creation of the brand and Biel artist Herbert Krake, aka Tarkin, to serve as a communications tool. With his Transformer-like, brawny physique, the futuristic Mr. Edge makes an intense impression, matching the bold statement and design language of the Edge collection. The robot’s likeness will appear on advertising and marketing support for the collection, which Armin Strom plans to extend with forthcoming new models.
