Swiss watchmaker Armand Nicolet adds to its collection OHM (Original Historical Movement), a new model under the name L14 .
The Swiss luxury watchmaking house, born around 1902 in the Bernese Jura, continues his journey to the sources of its history, with its new L14 model. It transports us to the heart of Armand Nicolet workshops, where, in the 1950s and 1960s we saw the birth of the original movements, which made the success of the brand.
Inherited from a long tradition of craftsmanship, perpetuated by master watchmakers, the L14, features an authentic caliber dating from 1957. It includes in its stainless steel case a mechanical with manual winding movement, caliber AN 0711C, based on UT 600, dating from 1957.
Under his anti-reflective sapphire glass, the watch unveils a skeleton gray dial with small seconds at 6 o’clock (sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on the bottom too).
Its strap is a black alligator leather with stainless steel buckle treated with black DLC.
Available in limited edition with only 499 pieces worldwide. For more info, please visit armandnicolet.com
