It’s taking the synthesis to the furthest degree“, says Max Chilton, driver for the Marussia F1 Team.

This watch is based on calibre AMW11, which has a 5-day power reserve and as Claude Greisler, designer and director expresses: “The Armin Strom Racing Manual has been developed so that each one of its beats represents a declaration of love for beautiful mechanics.”

Racing Gravity is the watch that animate the king’s category of motor racing. The transmission is provided by a microrotor mechanism, which activates when gravity opposes a kinetic force.
