Armin Strom has skeletonised watches by hand over 200 pieces over the last 30 years.Founded in 2006, Armin Strom SA is based in the watch-making center of Biel. The main investor is the well-known Burgdorf industrialist, Willy Michel.They have developed a concept that plays with the four elements: water, air, earth and fire. In 2008, the Regulator model was the first watch to be based on this concept. In 2009they moved to the new facilities and opened a real manufacture.The presentation of the own calibre, the ARM09, was in 2009.The company is split into two different brands, Armin Strom and ARMIN by Armin Strom. The first, bearing the name of the master skeletonizer, focuses on that very feat. Each movement is hand skeletonized by the company's team of expertly trained watch-makers.
