How is it possible to improve a successful classic? It’s a big challenge because there is nothing more difficult than the refurbishment of a successful classic. The Maison’s designers accepted the challenge and for two years built upon the classical M02 collection creating a more sophisticated version of the timeless M02. Their goal was to create a successor that wows the public just as the original model does while beautifying it furthermore.
The general concept remains the same, but the new look integrates the present day trends of the market for a bigger face. The timelessness of the original version’s familiar lines and characteristics have been preserved while modifying little details that give the watches a bigger outlook while maintaining the same external size. The new artistry involves a new screwed case back with a new pattern that is more comfortable to wear.
The top sapphire crystal and the dial are slightly larger and are the new style from the L06 series. The screwed crown for the stainless steel version and the 2 “OR” crowns for the 18Kt gold version are more decorative bearing the new Armand Nicolet emblem.
There are the classical versions in stainless steel and in 18Kt rose gold with a silvered or black dial, a new choice of a bicolor version that has an 18Kt rose gold bezel on the steel case with a new grey dial that has been added. This renders the M02 family more attractive while contemporarily keeping its classical appeal.
These new aesthetical characteristics have been reserved for the following complications: Complete Calendar, Chronograph, Big Date & Small Seconds and Big Date & Chronograph.
