Former British Formula 1 driver Max Chilton will be an official partner of the Armin Strom Mens Watches Replica watch company for this year’s Verizon IndyCar Series. The partnership is set to increase awareness of the independent Swiss watch brand in the U.S. and Canada.
Regardless of the visible balance wheels, the dial stays very legible. The ideal half of this dial homes the sub dial that tells the time. The hour and minute hands are made from rose gold. The newest and the version of the watch form a smaller circle within the dial. I’m not so sure that I want to be reminded of the watch’s name on the dialup, but that is not a deal-breaker for me personally. That said, I’d however, favor a cleaner design.To the left are two subsidiary seconds dials with quite cool-looking triple-spoke seconds hands. What’s even neater is that the next hands twist in opposite directions. The top hand spins counter-clockwise, while the reduced hand moves in a clockwise direction. It creates a fairly nice looking effect. Based on Armin Strom, it takes less than 10 minutes for the effects of resonance to take hold of the two running moments hands, after which you will see them beating in unison.And further to the left of both subsidiary seconds dials are the stars of this watch – both resonating balance wheels. The 2 wheels oscillate in a rather unusual speed of 25,200bph, but what is really unique about it is the patented resonance clutch that connects both equilibrium wheels via the equilibrium spring studs (the endings of the balance spring). This clutch enables the transmission of vibrational forces between both equilibrium wheels, letting them find a natural rhythm so that they can beat in unison. Rather than a clutch or linking mechanism, both F.P. Journe’s Chronomètre à Résonance see and Beat Haldimann’s H2 Flying Resonance are concerned with adjusting the distance of the two oscillators to create the effects of resonance.
Chilton’s first race is today, March 13, at the Firestone Grand Prix in St. Petersburg, Fla., and the season will take him to Long Beach, Fort Worth, Toronto and 10 other cities before the last race in Sonoma on September 18. Armin Strom’s logo will appear on Chilton’s helmet and car, as he drives for Chip Ganassi Racing.
“I’ve been a big fan of Armin Strom Skeleton Watches Replica watches for some time following an ambassador relationship with them while I was in F1,” said Chilton. “The detail and craftsmanship that goes into every model is amazing. I’ve been to the factory several times and have a great relationship with the team there; so now to be partnering with them is a real pleasure.”
Serge Michel, owner of Armin Strom said, “We’re delighted to have Max back as an official brand ambassador. His passion and commitment to innovation and excellence matches our own. We’re especially pleased as this sponsorship presents opportunities for us to promote the brand with many of our North American retailers.”
