Swiss watchmaking manufacture Armand Nicolet presents the new VS-1 collection, which epitomises sport, style and elegance. A striking design with Italian character and a choice of original materials create a watch that blends modernity and technology with vintage style and fashion of the second half of the 20th century. With its unconventional style and reduced diameter, the watch will never cease to amaze – the VS-1 collection strikes a balance between the past and the present, projecting itself into the future.

The new collection comes in three versions – Date, GMT and Chronograph in a 38 mm case. If you go back in history you’ll notice that the diver’s sports watches of the second half of the 20th century were of an identical size and were considered enormous at the time.

The watch features a sapphire-coated acrylic crystal and the luminescent hands glow brilliantly in the dark, giving a full view of the gradient dial, which is responsible for the contemporary style. The watch is powered by the Selita-based AN200 automatic calibre, which has a power reserve of 38 hours.

The new VS-1 Chronograph is water-resistant to 100 metres and features a chronograph movement.

The range is available in a variety of colours – green, burgundy, white and grey. This watch will adorn both men’s and women’s hands and will be a universal accessory for every day.
