Having introduced its new bigger & bolder “Edge” watch at Baselworld earlier this year, Armin Strom is now adding to the collection with this great looking new custom edition which pays tribute to the brand’s Ambassador and IndyCar driver Max Chilton. Chilton raced in F1 last year (and since 2012) for Team Marussia, a team which Armin Strom also sponsored at the time. Drawing on Chilton’s number and IndyCar, ARMIN STROM’s designers integrated a number of eye-catching details into this edition of the Edge watch.
On the dial side, Chilton’s numeral 8 appears in the small seconds register. Blue hour numbers match the blue on his turbocharged Chevrolet race car. A special plate on the back is etched with Chilton’s “Max” logo and notes this special series is limited to just eight timepieces and priced at 26,900 Swiss Francs.
Along with the Chilton design additions, the Armin Strom manufacture-made ARM16 caliber features the timepiece’s unusual geometric and angular components. Unconventional cross-grinding decoration of the handbeveled bridges intensifies the watch’s industrial feel. The bezel is enhanced with a series of sharp cutouts and retains the signature “tab” at the bottom of the bezel.
The design of the watch fits very well with the world of high speed racing. Nice job Claude & team.
