Tribute 1 Rose Gold
The Tribute 1 is a modern reinterpretation of the haute horology dress watch that is technically-innovative and beautifully hand-finished. With its offset grey dial featuring uniquely designed rose gold coated steel hands and an ingeniously efficient 100-hour mainspring barrel on the dial plate, the Tribute 1 brings technical prowess and highest standards of hand-finishing in the Manufacture’s most minimalist creation to date. Limited to 100 pieces, the Rose Gold Edition features a grey grenage textured dial plate.
Consistent with Armin Strom’s approach of showcasing innovative mechanical elements on the dial side of our watches, the Tribute 1 is equipped with a hand-polished dial-side motor barrel. This barrel is distinguished by an arbor that turns around the mainspring within the barrel itself; making it more efficient while also conserving space. It provides 100 hours of continuous operation.
Conceived as a tribute to the classic dress watch but far from a simple homage to the past, the Tribute 1 boasts an unconventional yet harmonious design in timelessly elegant proportions. The crown is positioned at 2 o’clock echoing the dial’s asymmetry, with the dial plate finished in a subtly textured “grenage” finish that further highlights the offset dial and visible mainspring barrel.
The Tribute 1’s manually-wound movement was developed and manufactured entirely in-house. Consistent with the Manufacture`s artisanal approach to watchmaking, every part of the Tribute 1 is hand-finished to the highest haute horology standards. For example, the three-quarter bridge is bevelled and polished in 60°; an arduous process that takes twice as long as more commonly-applied methods.
