The WorldTempus Team Test with Armin Strom
For this week’s Team Test, we had the opportunity of trying on the new Armin Strom Gravity Equal Force Jungle Green, which was an instant hit for the WorldTempus team. Our journalists particularly appreciated the jungle green colour, which is quite out there for a fine timepiece. It seems that after a decade or more of the “vintage” trend, watchmakers are starting to find their crazy side again, and we love it! Discover our thoughts about this limited edition of 15 pieces here.

Louis Vuitton in Megève
The WorldTempus team was in the French ski station of Megève last week for the launch of Louis Vuitton’s novelties. Just like Armin Strom, above, creativity is certainly at the forefront at Louis Vuitton’s new range of timepieces that really catch the eye. Check out the Tambour Spin Time Air Quantum, the Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours and the Tambour Slim Vivienne Jumping Hours Casino for a variety of colours, gem-settings, and fun!
