Warning: do not be deceived by the traditional-looking 43mm rose gold case. This mechanical marvel is crammed with technical fireworks that require a comprehensive grasp of physics and the phenomenon of resonance. In a nutshell, resonance is another word for synchronised motion, a concept that has fascinated watchmakers since the time of Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695), inventor of the pendulum clock. Resonance is all about how “one body in motion relays its vibrations to its surroundings” (the exciter) and how “another body with a similar natural resonant frequency to the first receives these vibrations...and starts vibrating at the same frequency”, (the resonator). Armin Strom has taken the concept of resonance and equipped this watch with two resonant regulators, visible on the dial. Thanks to the stabilising effect it has on timekeeping coupled with the conservation of energy, the Mirrored Force Resonance watch will appeal to hardcore watch enthusiasts out there. Made entirely in-house by Armin Strom in a limited edition of 50 pieces, the brand has, quite understandably, registered a patent for this model.
