This extraordinary piece celebrates the fifth anniversary of the brand’s resonance technology. Zeitgeist shines the spotlight on Armin Strom’s patented Resonance Clutch Spring and its ability to create the most consistent timekeeping. The extraordinary component is a testimony to the brand’s ideals and its focus on cutting-edge research and evolution in watchmaking. Zeitgeist marks the next chapter for resonance watches.

Armin Strom’s ingenious technology is dramatically showcased in the Zeitgeist by exposing the entire mechanism. The Zeitgeist elevates the patented, time-tested and scientifically-proven Resonance Clutch Spring in a new caliber, giving the technology a facelift and offering an understated aesthetic profile.

«We decided to create something unique for this fifth anniversary: a work of art that honors our resonance technology and pays tribute to our roots in skeletonization. Zeitgeist’s movement was painstakingly produced, piece by piece, clearly emphasizes the resonance mechanism. This has never been done before so we’re all very excited»

Resonance Technology and the Value of Consistency

 

Armin Strom began working with resonance by learning from what Christiaan Huygens, Abraham-Louis Breguet, and Antide Janvier had already discovered centuries ago: resonance is incredibly valuable for consistency, employing scientific principles to regulate rate precision over time. The old masters were engineers who sought to create the most precise and consistent timekeepers for use as scientific instruments, performing tests to discover new principles. The phenomenon of resonance on oscillating systems was successfully applied to horology but has remained very rare due to the difficulty of its implementation.

Armin Strom’s patented Resonance Clutch Spring

Crafted from a single piece of steel, the Resonance Clutch Spring is designed to transfer energy between both hairsprings and quickly bring the balance wheels into resonance. Armin Strom’s newest generation of resonance is the quickest and most reliable on the market, synchronizing faster than any other watch using resonance.

Thanks to the Resonance Clutch Spring, a flexible suspension connecting the two hairsprings with its balance wheels, all of Armin Strom’s Resonance watches are more resistant to shocks or vibrations. Precision and consistency are, of course, the ultimate goals of mechanical watchmaking and resonance plays a crucial role in helping these amazing watches keep time consistently over days, weeks, and months. Armin Strom’s goal is a watch that the owner knows will tell the time consistently, day in and day out.

«Zeitgeist honors our resonance technology, which plays a very important part in the history and the future of our brand. It stands for our belief in the evolution of watchmaking and it clearly marks the next chapter in resonance for our manufacture.»
