The Armin Strom Hand-Engraved Skeleton  2 Comments


Mr Andreas Loffler of La Boutique Swiss, a watch distributor in Eastern Europe visited Singapore together with Mr Wilhelm Rieber (see report below). At the same dinner Mr Loffler showed us Armin Strom watches which he brought along to show his friends and collectors here. Armin Strom is currently being marketed to Eastern Europeans and does not have representation in Asia and he wanted to garner the impressions the watches he had from the small group of us at the dinner.
While Mr Loftler had about a dozen watches with him from the Armin Strom collection, this simple skeleton watch caught the most attention. The watches from Armin Strom are large - conforming to today's demands but the cases are well made with a characteristic bezel extension located below six marker.
The strength of the watches from Armin Strom is the ornately engraved movements. The engraving is very well done for the asking price. Click on the image to view the close ups of this skeleton watch. Its embodies Armin Strom's strength which is the hand engraving of the dial side as well as the movement side of the watch.
Will we see this brand being sold here in Singapore or Asia? Possibly - but it will depend on what Mr Loftler discovers from collector's views on his fact finding tour.
