Armand Nicolet O.H.M. L15 Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand Armand Nicolet welcomes a new model L15 to its prestigious limited edition series O.H.M.

The O.H.M. (Original Historical Movement) Series feature original historical movements from the 1950’s and 1960’s that are recovered and tuned in Armand Nicolet’s atelier. These series are produced only in Limited Editions because the quantity is determined by the amount of original historical movements still available. Watchmakers at Armand Nicolet’s atelier manually restore and re-assemble each of these unique pieces. These precious movements are the result of many years of expertise and dedication to the fine art of watch-making. The uniqueness, the beauty and the exceptional technical value along with the historical charm are the reasons of the extraordinary success of Armand Nicolet’s O.H.M. Series.
Thanks to its slightly smaller case, curved dial and leaf shaped hands; the L15 is simply the watch you need to highlight the shape of your wrist. These features will spread a halo of elegance and charm from your figure that will be impossible to resist. The observance of the tradition is kept by its finishing, which is the same of the successful LL9 model.
This collection is offered in the three classic materials: stainless steel, gold and a combination of the two. The colour of the dial varies from silvered to black without forgetting the grey shade of the stainless steel version. The grey dial with pink indexes is available on the two toned version and also on the rose gold model that comes with silvered dial as well. The limited amount of watches produced relates to the quantity of original components from 1967 still available in the Armand Nicolet factory.

The L15 collection will be produced in the total amount of 450 pieces (400 pieces in stainless steel and two-toned, 50 pieces in rose gold).
