Let me start by saying that from the minute the watch arrived at my doorstep and I opened the package, I was in love with the look. The watch is a manual timepiece with beautiful finishing and a multi-layer dial with main-plate and a portion of the gears and wheels on full display. That multi-layer dial also gives the watch depth and dimension that you don’t get on classic replica watches UK.
The hour and minute ring are slightly off-centered, allowing for the Armin Strom logo to run vertically from 2:00 to 4:00, on a special plate screwed into the movement. The hour and minute ring, as well as the smaller subsidiary seconds dial at 9, are all in white. Configured for me: the stunning light blue colour of the main-plate, certain movement parts visible on the dial side and reverse side of the watch, and the dark blue alligator strap with white stitching.
Did I say I was in love? The blue is exactly the colour of dark aquamarine – not only my favourite gemstone but also my birthstone. Now, some women may say the watch is a bit too large for them at 43.4mm, but I thought it sat perfectly on my wrist. Apparently, others liked it, as well. On the security check at the airport, it caught the attention of several people. Likewise, at a business meeting, I was actually asked to take it off and hand it over to a top-level female real estate specialist – who was enthralled. Yes, the watch came off my wrist a lot to show it around, but that was fine because the double-folding clasp made it super easy to take on and off.
I have been a fan of Armin Strom blue dial fake watches for years now. This independent brand was founded in 1967 by Mr Armin Strom, a restorer of watches, and a watchmaker who specialized in skeleton watches. His concept of “showing” what he made has been the guiding principle of the brand, and today’s owners and leaders continue that philosophy. Hence, the multi-dimensional dial and the transparent sapphire caseback that allow for viewing of the movement’s parts. Armin Strom naturally coasts that sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides so glare does not impede the readability of the time or the beauty of the dial.
The brand also creates its timepieces in series that recall the key elements: Earth (black PVD cases Armin Strom copy watches), Air (titanium), Water (steel), Fire (18-karat rose gold). The Armin Strom Manual Cameleon watch I borrowed was the Air – and the satin-finished titanium case was so lightweight that it seemed almost “not there” when on my wrist. Except that every time I glanced at it – it stared back at me – a statement of elegance, craftsmanship and powerful allure. Yep, it was there.
