Armin Strom has added a date model to its 2014 Gravity collection, equipped with the new manufacture caliber ADD14, an automatic mechanical movement with dial-side viewing of the micro-rotor and other mechanics.
The difference between this and the Armin Strom Gravity time-only model is the fact that the small-seconds is now integrated with the date and the 24-hour counter. The adjustment of the date is made even easier due to the day/night (24 hours) display which sits on the same axis.
The new ADD14 caliber we’ve mentioned earlier is Armin Strom’s 12th in-house caliber and retains the same design principles of the company’s previous work: dial-side rotor/winding mechanism, while on the back plate and bridges there are hand-engravings representing the Four Elements (Earth, Air, Wind, and Fire). The regulator is a screwed balance with Breguet overcoil spring which oscillates at 18,800 bph.
The Gravity Date is available in every one of the four themes mentioned earlier, limited to just 100 pieces each. Prices start at around $22,000 and go up to the $37,700 red gold version.
