Swiss watchmaker Armin Strom showed its hand, played a mean game of poker and won against the house at the Eadness event in Las Vegas. Their latest timepiece, introduced at an even at the Mandarin Oriental couple of weeks ago is the Tourbillon Royal Flush. Highlight of the watch is its engraved royal flush on the back of the skeletonized movement. A special limited edition, each of the four suits (spades/hearts/clubs/diamonds) are on line to receive a piece – making it a 4 piece collection.
Both the front and back feature Armin Strom’s famous hand engraved decorations. The black dial features a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, hour and minute ring with white appliqued Arabic and stick hour markers and rose gold hands.
Housed in an 18 karat 43.4 mm x 13 mm rose gold case, its caliber ATC11 manual wind movement boasts a 10-day power reserve (double barrel), 50 m water resistance, 18,000 vph and tourbillon. Workings of the movement and the unique Royal Flush engraving is visible from the sapphire crystal caseback.
The Tourbillon Royal Flush is delivered with two straps, one a horn-back alligator with an 18 karat double fold clasp. Second is a brown rubber strap. For additional information and pricing contact Bettina Fleurry at [email protected].
