Armand Nicolet Men's LS8 Collection. This elegant, captivating and exclusive collection is equipped with a skeleton original vintage movement from the 1950's that has been recovered and tuned to meet today's standards. It features a finely opened guilloché dial through which one can admire all the beauty of this extraordinary mechanism. The engravings and decorations on it add a final touch to this Limited Edition Collection that features the wonderful manual wind mechanical movement AN0711S. The limited amount of watches produced relates to the quantity of original components from 1957 still available in our factory. Through the dial and the sapphire glass it’s possible to admire the beautiful skeletonised movement and the gold engravings reporting the series number of every watch. This luxury Swiss watch is sourced direct from Armand Nicolet, once you place your order the watch will be assembled in Swiss therefore handling time might take up to 14 days.
Armand Nicolet’s Limited Edition L07 faces a new challenge and joins the world of chronographs. Limited to 140 pieces, the L07 collection features 20 pieces of the famous VENUS 175 movement with “column wheel” and 120 pieces of VENUS 188 with “navettes” system. L07 goes farther beyond Armand Nicolet’s best masterpieces in terms of finishing and decoration. The plate and the bridges of the movements deserve particular attention: they are entirely finished with a motif that recaptures a decoration used in the 1930s on high-end movements. After the surface has been perfectly polished, the plate and the bridges are hand decorated using an ivory point. The point scrapes the shiny surface creating lines every 2 mm resulting in a unique and beautiful outlook. The balance wheel, made of a special alloy, has a counter-weight system with balance screws. The vibrations are 18.000 per hour and the power reserve is 32 hours. The movement is engraved with the limited number on the frame opening on the dial.
