NIVREL Special Editions – Le Chronograph Replique II

At unregular intervals, NIVREL introduces special editions to the market that mostly have a strict limitation as they are meant to be collector’s items. Latest treasure from Nivrel is the Chronographe Replique II. Both versions of this watch are a hommage to two different NIVREL chronographs from the 1950s. The original watches had been equipped with a mechanical winding chronograph movement calibre Landeron 47.

The replica models also feature a mechanical winding chronograph movement calibre Landeron 248. This movement is from the same product family that was built from 1933 until 1970. It has been beautifully refurbished by NIVREL, featuring details such as blued screws and gold-plated bridges.

At the beginning of the 1990s, NIVREL presented a replica model (Ref. N 515.001) of an old manual winding chronograph from the 1940s. It was limited to 100 pieces and sold out immediately. Today, the watch is a high regarded object for collectors.

In 2009 – some 15 years after the introduction of the first replica model – NIVREL presented a second model of this kind. The NIVREL Chronographe Replique II is available in two different versions. Both are – in a unique way – a hommage to two different NIVREL chronographs from the 1950s. The original watches had been equipped with a mechanical winding chronograph movement calibre Landeron 47.

The replica models also feature a mechanical winding chronograph movement calibre Landeron 248. This movement is from the same product family that was built from 1933 until 1970. The movement measures 13.75‘‘‘, has 17 jewels, a power reserve of 43 hours, and an oscillation of 18.000 A/h. The follow-up model of the original Landeron 47 has been beautifully refurbished by NIVREL, featuring details such as blued screws and gold-plated bridges.
