It isn't every day that a brand like Armin Strom comes around. For over a decade, the uniquely independent brand from Bienne has been producing a bevy of innovative novelties. So when we had the opportunity to host Armin Strom Co-Founders Serge Michel and Claude Greisler, we jumped at the chance! After all, Watchonista has extensively covered the brand's creations (Read HERE, HERE, and HERE) and it was our pleasure to present the pieces stateside to friends and collectors of Watchonista!

On the occasion of Armin Strom's visit to the United States, Watchonista and Watches of Switzerland had the pleasure of hosting an intimate dinner at Watches of Switzerland SoHo. Making what may be the first US debut was Armin Strom's 2019 novelties including the extraordinary Dual Time Resonance Sapphire. A vibrant cocktail hour was followed by a seated dinner and guests stayed well into the night to speak with Serge and Claude about their unique take on watchmaking. Enjoy this photo gallery of the event!
