Armand Nicolet 9155A-AS-M9150 34mm M03 Classic Small Seconds & Date Automatic for women

Despite of being labelled as a "formal" styled timepiece, this M03 Classic’s contemporary styling is quite understated so that it also suitable for daily wear. The watch itself is constructed with enduring materials, while the mechanical Calibre AN 2895-2 VHH/VHR fitted inside is fairly rugged as well so that you dont have to treat it like a fragile antique as it would sure to withstand daily bumps and wont get easily scratched as well. Of course, we wont saying that this luxury wrist accessory is an appropriate one to be worn frequently if it is not comfortable to wear.

For ladies’ average wrist, this Armand Nicolet 9155A-AS-M9150 would be more likely a large size watch. Its polished round case that is made of surgical grade stainless steel 316L has a diameter of 34mm, and it is approximately 11mm thick, a fairly thin one for an automatic. Meanwhile, its elegant five-rows polished link bracelet that is made of the same durable material as the case and comes equipped with a deployant hidden folding clasp with push button safety measures is around 18mm wide, the link is adjustable, and it is designed to accommodates up to 6.3 inches of wrist’s circumference.

Similar to the most of AN’s M03 collection models, this watch features an exhibition caseback, in which, just like the one that shields the face, its window is a scratch resistant sapphire glass --it doesn’t features an anti-reflective coating as the one at front, though. The steel crown at its case’s right hand side is fluted to makes it easier to use, and just like those that often used on watches with 100 meters water resistant or more, it is a screw-down type.

Side Angle: Dial and Crown. As one of the 34mm Small Seconds & Date signature design elements, this watch’s face is "two-tone", comprises of guilloché decorated and Mother of Pearl background, in which, the guilloché part of this model is finished in Silver, while the MOP is Pink colored. It has a "rich" detailing, yet, it seems neat and also quite easy to read. This dial features silver-tone, partly skeletonized dauphine hands that point to the applied, sculpted square and Roman numeral hour-markers. More on the dial are a small seconds subsidiary that is situated at six, and a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position. In addition, there are 60-minute scale steely dot markers for easy reference along the dial’s periphery.

Speaking a bit about its "heart", the self-winding Calibre AN 2895-2 VHH/VHR empoyed by this timepiece is not an exclusive movement. It is personalized by Armand Nicolet based on the ETA 2895-2, in which, inheriting its base caliber’s characteristics, this 11½ lignes automatic 27 jewels movement has a small seconds that are are run off the minute hand, and does hack when the crown is pulled out. Goes without saying, the movement is also beating at a high frequency of 28,800 alteration per hour, has a winding mechanism that works in both directions, and provides around 42 hours of power reserve when fully wound.

In terms of performance, the AN 2895-2 VHH/VHR is not a Chronometer grade. But, it is quite accurate for an automatic with an average deviation that is rated slightly better that elaborate grade at less than ±7 sec per day, and it is also fairly rugged as well thanks to the shock arbsorber integrated within. And in addition, being fitted within a timepiece that features a see-thru case back, of course, it has an some enjoyable aesthetic finishing such as perlage and Côtes de Genève pattern applied as well.

Anyway, for all of its quality offerings, this women’s stainless steel 316L on steel bracelet Silver guilloché and Pink MOP dial Armand Nicolet M03 Small Seconds & Date 9155A-AS-M9150 automatic wrist watch is reasonably offered at an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $3,700.00.
