Armand Nicolet O.H.M. LB6 Limited Edition

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.

The skilled watchmakers from Armand Nicolet 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, the exceptional technical value along with the historical charm are the reasons of the extraordinary success of Armand Nicolet’s O.H.M. Series.

In the wake of the last O.H.M. collection L15, the LB6 is the new Limited Edition collection that adds a new face to elegance. The domed dial is the core feature of this version, giving the whole series a retro look and perfectly portraying the year in which its movement was manufactured: 1956.
This stainless steel collection is presented in the classic four dial colours: silver, blue, grey and black; as for the strap, calf leather is the perfect match for this collection.
The  limited  amount  of  watches  produced  relates  to  the  quantity  of  original components from 1956 still available in the Armand Nicolet factory. The LB6 collection will be produced in 225 pieces.
