After the great success of the rose gold premier model, the limited edition Mirrored Force Resonance has now been augmented by a stainless steel variant with a dark blue alligator strap dedicated to the element of water. The white dial endows this exceptional timepiece with an elegant retro character and sets the stage for the resonance mechanism with striking contrasts.
Two oscillating bodies in close proximity influence each other and eventually synchronize; this is a phenomenon of physics known as resonance. Towards the end of the year 2016, Armin Strom introduced the Mirrored Force Resonance, a resonating dual regulator developed for maximum precision with its whole captivating mechanism on full display dial side.
Since then, only a handful of watchmakers have attempted to harness the effects of resonance, whose advantages of resonance are threefold:
1. A stabilizing effect on timekeeping (advantageous to accuracy).
2. A conservation of energy (think of a professional cyclist riding in the shadow of anothercyclist in a racing situation).
3. A reduction of negative effects on timekeeping accuracy due to outside perturbation such as shock to the balance staff, which in turn keeps the rate more stable and increases precision.
The two visible, connected oscillators make their revolutions in opposite directions, one rotating clockwise and the other counter clockwise. After winding, the twin balance wheels need approximately 10 minutes to become synchronous. The case band pusher at 2 o’clock resets the luminous twin seconds’ displays to zero, simultaneously resetting the twin balance wheels. The Mirrored Force Resonance is the most complicated timepiece that Armin Strom manufactures and a patent has been registered.
