Armin Strom Gumball 3000 Watch Collection Hands-On
If watch number one was too subdued for you, the level of ostentation is ramped up with the Armin Strom Double Barrel Gumball 3000. This is my personal favourite of the trio. The black case is PVD coated titanium this time, and it houses the ARM12-GB self-winding calibre. The double barrel feature kicks out a 10-day power reserve, meaning this is certainly a watch you can rely on for long car journeys! The movement is again visible through the off-centre cutaway dial, but in this case, we can see a few more functional components peeping through. The large, circularly grained wheels catch the light excellently and breathe a great deal of life into this watch face. Furthermore, the gold edging of the carbon-inlay bridges adds a lustre and sense of completeness the Armin Strom Manual Gumball 3000 arguably lacked.
