Armin Strom has released some great watches. From the front, this looks like another normal Armin Strom. There's a tourbillon, it has the classic case shape, the hand style is the same, etc. But from the back, this is a whole new animal. This is, from now on, the "poker watch" in my book. On the back plate of the movement, visible through the exhibition case back, are the cards ten-ace, a royal flush. Inside of the watch is the Armin Strom calibre ATC11, a tourbillon movement with two barrels and a power reserve of 10 days. The case is solid rose gold, 43.4mm in diameter, and water resistant to 50m. The hands, in an effort to match the case, are also rose gold as well. How many will be specially engraved? Just one. This is a watch with a fancy engraving on the movement and you will only be able to find one. Armin Strom will debut their new watch in person on May 30 at the Eadness event at the Mandarin Oriental Vegas during JCK. For [deep-pocketed] poker fans, this is a cool watch to have, especially since we can guarantee no one else will have one.
