For­mula 1

Plaza Watch International - - Strom Revs It Up -

Though it might seem like a tiny bit of a stretch for this lit­tle company, the big in­vest­ment it has been mak­ing in spon­sor­ing For­mula 1 team Marus­sia and driver Max Chilton for three years has been pay­ing off in terms of recog­ni­tion and aware­ness. Most re­cently, how­ever, it has paid off be­cause the tech­ni­cians at Ar­min Strom were al­lowed to cre­ate some move­ment com­po­nents out of an en­gine block used in ac­tual For­mula 1 rac­ing. “As the move­ment is al­ways at the cen­tre of our watch’s de­sign, it makes a lot of sense to draw at­ten­tion to it this way,” Greisler said. There have been enor­mous changes in F1 en­gines this sea­son, with reg­u­la­tions forc­ing teams to move to V6 hy­brid tech­nol­ogy, so get­ting their hands on one to take apart wasn’t dif­fi­cult for Greisler. The ma­te­rial is now in use to make the bridges of the move­ments of the Rac­ing Grav­ity pow­ered by Cal­i­bre AMR13-MR.
