These dials are produced in the workshops of Kari Voutilainen in Môtiers, on century-old rose engines that can only be operated by experienced craftsmen with the requisite expertise. The resulting dials are genuine works of art and, thanks to the minute differences in pressure applied by the craftsman, no two dials are ever identical.

The Gumball 3000, because it’s known, started life on British shores, but is now a really global event, together with the course shifting each year to keep things interesting. The rally, that has not avoided controversy because its foundation in 1999, is popular with celebrities and wealthy civilians, all of whom drive the car of their choice onto the public road course in pursuit of glory or the excursion of a life. How then, will a project that aims to inject some of the Gumball Rally’s characteristic chaos into the brand fare?When I heard of this triple-header launch, I didn’t have a clue what to expect. The Gumball Rally appeared a really “out there” selection of collaboration for such a strait-laced brand, but one I was looking forward to seeing. I kind of expected that Armin Strom Watches Buy Replica would go down the wacky Swatch course and completely trick these out timepieces with bold, goofy graphics and eye-popping fonts rather than the (understandably) more restrained approaches of brands such as Omega with the America’s Cup Watch or Tag Heuer using the Formula One pieces. What resulted was something in between that could either strike the right balance or leave you feeling a bit flat.The problem with pulling off a celebratory collection like this is becoming enough event branding into the piece without it becoming a grisly billboard. With this group, Armin Strom have managed to integrate the Gumball 3000 script logo into the plan, but does it work? Do these watches have enough Gumball to deliver the ideal message, or does the labelling jar a lot with its fancy frame? Let us take a look at the collection, piece by piece to learn.
