Pre-Basel Exclusive: ARMIN Racing Chronograph

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

In the context of its association with the Marussia Virgin Racing F1 stable, watch manufacturer, Armin Strom, has the pleasure of presenting the official watch for the team’s mechanics and development staff. Called the ARMIN Racing Chronograph, this timekeeper will not go by unnoticed in the paddocks, thanks to its black PVD titanium case with imposing diameter. The product, with date at 9 o’clock and components sculpted out of the materials used in racing cars, focuses on the challenge facing F1 of pushing materials to the limits of their applications. The circles around the various indications on the dial, highlighted in bright red, serve as a clear reminder to mechanical sports enthusiasts of the efforts exerted by brake discs during a Sunday Grand Prix.

The ARMIN Racing Chronograph was developed with a deep concern to achieve reliability in all tests and devote particular attention to the component finishing and decoration visible through the case back. This care and a passion for detail have always constituted the driving force of master watchmaker Armin Strom and his Brand.
