Last October we announced to you that Armin Strom and the Virgin Racing F1 team would soon be in cahoots in the paddock. Well, the amorous banter has ceased and here’s a peek at their first off-spring, the Armin Racing Chronograph. Virgin Racing F1 are now Marussia Virgin Racing F1 and this is an Armin Strom, Armin but these are mere trivialities, here’s the watch – a big, bold sporty timer.
The case is titanium with matt black PVD coating, 44.4mm with sapphire front and back. The Marussia Virgin F1 colours – red, black and white feature strongly but the branding is fairly subtle all the same. It is hard to make out from the press images, but there is also a date window at 9 o’clock. Inside is a mechanical movement with chronograph function and power reserve of 46 hours.
The Armin Strom Racing Chronograph comes presented on a black leather or black and red rubber strap with PVD coated buckle.
