ARMAND NICOLET SO5

By TLex The SO5 isn't strictly a diver despite its 300m depth rating. Its still got a fair amount going for it, though; a large DLC treated titanium case, rotational bezel, chunky crown with rubber insert, double sided AR coated sapphire crystal, even the cute little fishy on its domed case back is quite charming, however I don't get the use of a moon-phase on sports watch isn't that an oxymoron or something, especially on the version with the stealth dial . . .?!



From Armand Nicolet The objective was to create a truly elegant sporty watch, one that offered as much style as wearer comfort. The case has been worked in titanium to make it more resistant to corrosion and to lessen the weight. A contemporary mechanical piece of true distinction, the new S05 from Armand Nicolet has surpassed all the expectations of its creator!
