A year after pioneering independent watchmaker Armin Ström launched a redesigned, sleeker Mirrored Force Resonance, the Swiss-based manufacturer has introduced a new version, the Mirrored Force Resonance Manufacture Edition Blue, with a specially textured blue dial and matching Alcantara strap.
New Armin Strom Mirrored Force Resonance Manufacture Edition Blue.
The new iteration of the watch, first introduced by Armin Strom in 2016, is still one of the few consistent watch designs to boast a resonance-based control system. The new series is a limited edition of fifty pieces with new blue accents that serve to highlight the three-dimensional display of the dial.
The new dark blue off-center dial matches the twin resonance seconds counters, both finished in the same blue tone and painted with white numerals. The open-worked seconds dials (with their triple-hands) can be reset at 2 o’clock by pushers.

These new colored components, unusual enough on any dial, share space with another component not seen in any other resonance-based construction: a one-piece steel resonance clutch spring.
Armon Strom’s signature creation essentially transfers energy between both hair springs and quickly brings the balance wheel into resonance.

This new watch retains the design’s 43mm by 11.55 steel case and raised sapphire crystal. On the back, Armin Ström engraved — in bas-relief — the main plate with technical details and characteristics of the mirrored force resonance mechanism.
To complete the blue theme, Armin Strom offers the Mirrored Force Resonance Manufacture Manufacture Edition Blue on a dark blue Alcantara strap.
