Armand Nicolet L09 Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch maker Armand Nicolet presents L09 collection, the first sporty line from the brand created in a limited edition.

The whole collection has been produced only in titanium to make it very strong and resistant yet keep it light and comfortable. The version in standard titanium features a silvered dial, the D.L.C. black treated case displays a black dial and the brand new two-toned version with bezel in 18 Kt rose gold 5N and black case shows off a beautiful and eye-catching navy blue dial.

The sapphire crystal with antiglare treatment on both sides, the easy readability in every light condition, the raised indexes and the wise use of Super – Luminova on the hands and dial are just some of the characteristics that make this collection very contemporary and stylish. These features combined with the vintage movement add that “something” to it that will take this collection far beyond simple fashion trends.

This limited edition of 450 pieces features AN0711A, a wonderful self-winding mechanical movement with a melodic sound coming from its beating heart at 18’000 vibrations per hour.

This movement has been created using original components from 1957 that have been modified and tuned by manufacturing experts of Armand Nicolet.

The limited amount of watches produced relates to the quantity of original components from 1957 still available in Armand Nicolet factory.
