Two oscillating bodies in close proximity influence each other and eventually synchronize; this is a phenomenon of physics known as resonance. Towards the end of the year 2016, Armin Strom introduced the Mirrored Force Resonance, a resonating dual regulator developed for maximum precision with its whole captivating mechanism on full display dial side.
Resonance is a sophisticated and demanding horological technique that has rarely been attempted, let alone mastered in the pursuit of horological accuracy, precision, and rate stability. Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695), inventor of the pendulum clock, was the first to discover the resonance of two separate pendulum clocks, while in the 18th century Abraham-Louis Breguet demonstrated his mastery of the phenomenon. Since then, only a handful of watchmakers have attempted to harness the effects of resonance, whose advantages of resonance are threefold: a stabilizing effect on timekeeping, a conservation of energy, a reduction of negative effects on timekeeping accuracy due to outside perturbation such as shock to the balance staff, which in turn keeps the rate more stable and increases precision.
The two visible, connected oscillators make their revolutions in opposite directions, one rotating clockwise and the other counterclockwise. After winding, the twin balance wheels need approximately 10 minutes to become synchronous. The case band pusher at 2 o’clock resets the luminous twin seconds’ displays to zero, simultaneously resetting the twin balance wheels. The Mirrored Force Resonance is the most complicated timepiece that Armin Strom manufactures and a patent has been registered.
From a purely functional and practical perspective, I find it very hard to fault this view. It even offers a zero-reset role to allow users to admire and see the effects of resonance on the job. The sole question here is do you like the way it looks? And that is a purely subjective thing. I think that it looks pretty fine, the dial, particularly, is mesmerizing to look at and quite legible. If I were to nitpick, then I will say there is not much to see in the case back side of the watch and that the finishing is a small chilly. The Armin Strom Cognac Watch Price Replica Mirrored Force Resonance watch in 18k rose gold is restricted to only 50 pieces and is costed at 67,000 CHF.If you don’t understand the fuss about the Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance watch, allow me to break it down to you. As its name clearly suggests, the Mirrored Force Resonance uses the principle of resonance to improve its chronometric functionality. Resonance, within the sphere of physics, refers to the phenomenon where a vibration or external force drives another system to oscillate with increased amplitude. In watchmaking, it typically indicates the use of 2 oscillators beating in close proximity to strengthen their beat pace. The idea is that if resonance occurs, the 2 oscillators will start to beat in sync with each other and with greater stability. This, then, translates to greater precision and better chronometric performance.Now, the thing concerning resonance watches is that they are incredibly rare. The Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance watch, so, joins a very exclusive club of watches.
The raison d’être of the Mirrored Force Resonance is to display the interesting functionality of the resonant balances while improving the watch’s overall precision. The resonance clutch spring provides the watch with a fascinating and patented “animation” of the way it functions. The resonance clutch spring is exciting in another way, too: it visually proves this timepiece’s resonance.
