The world’s first bezel-displayed date function
Armin Strom has completely reinterpreted the ubiquitous date function in the Orbit, the world’s first watch with an on-demand date indicated on the bezel. Crafted in steel with a ceramic bezel and an integrated steel bracelet, the Orbit adds a sporty touch to the first-of-its-kind column-wheel retrograde date atop the micro-rotor automatic movement with a torque-limiting barrel for optimal chronometric performance through the watch’s autonomy.
The Orbit’s innovative on-demand retrograde date hand essentially has two modes: a stationary mode and an active mode. When the date hand is in the stationary mode, it remains in its fixed position pointing at 12 o’clock, leaving the off-centred dial unobstructed. Using the pusher on the left side of the case, the date hand is ”engaged” and jumps to point at the correct date. In this mode, the date automatically advances once per day at midnight. With another push of the button, the hand returns to its stationary position, with a mechanical memory allowing it to jump back to the correct date whenever demanded by the wearer.
With the Orbit, Armin Strom has created a singular timepiece that’s innovative yet functional enough to be enjoyed as a daily wearer by even the most discerning watch-lovers, and different enough to always keep them captivated. Highly three-dimensional yet full of striking and legible details, the Orbit stands out in the System 78 collection with its redesigned sporty case with a highly scratch-resistant black ceramic bezel and an integrated steel bracelet that emphasises ergonomics.
True to Armin Strom’s singular approach of always highlighting the inner workings of mechanical watchmaking on the dial-side, the Orbit showcases the unique column-wheel mechanism for the retrograde on-demand date, as well as its innovative automatic winding mechanism with an efficient micro-rotor and mainspring barrel with an ingenious stop-work declutch mechanism. Discerning eyes will undoubtedly appreciate the intricate hand-finishing on the movement’s various elements.
