WatchTime New York 2022 will return to Gotham Hall from October 21-23, offering a rare chance for avid watch lovers to interact with the world’s most creative watchmakers. Over the course of the weekend, more than 30 participating watch brands will display their most sought-after releases from the past year. Joining the lineup of brands at this year’s show is Armin Strom, with the watchmaker positioned to showcase the new Tribute 1 Rose Gold.
The brand’s latest model saw its release at the beginning of October, with the watch serving as a follow-up to a steel reference launched in 2021, the original Tribute 1. The rose gold edition maintains a slender profile and embodies Swiss-German design ethos in a modern dress watch. Though this time opting for a precious metal rather than steel, Armin Strom preserves 38mm as its chosen diameter for the case design. The rose gold exterior has geometric, brushed lugs, a mirror-polished bezel, and a crown in the two o’clock position that all contribute to its refined style.
Like the steel original, the dial of the rose gold edition is made up of three primary components, with a smaller sub-dial for the time display resting upon a grained outer section and a large hand-finished barrel on display toward the bottom right sector. A large gold bridge secures the barrel, with its color accenting and light skeletonization matching the style of the hands and alternating hour indices.
The movement that powers the new Tribute 1 is the same as the steel original via Armin Strom’s manufacture Caliber AMW21. The hand-wound movement features a flat hairspring, beats at a frequency of 3.5 Hz (or 25,200 vph), and hosts an impressive power reserve of 100 hours. The caliber is adorned with côtes de Genève, gleaming, polished jewel sinks, and a mainplate stylized with a circular graining, all visible visible via a sapphire exhibition case back. The balance cock and the stepped escape-wheel cock deliver more three-dimensional allure, while their edges are hand-beveled to convey an overall sense of luxury.
The Armin Strom Tribute 1 Rose Gold will become available via the brand directly and via authorized boutiques, with retail marked at $23,900 and total production limited to 100 pieces.
