Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-G9610

Collection: S05 Gender: Men
This attractive Nero is the Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-G9610, one of the S05 Day & Date series variants that sports a rugged, D.L.C. Black treated stainless steel construction. Offering the same sporty design (yet somehow, it looks bolder compared to the other models), the gent’s watch accommodates the same Calibre AN 2834-2 TNK inside the case, and it also boasts a capacity of 300 m water resistance.

Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-G9610 44mm S05 Day & Date Automatic Nero for men

Design wise, this Nero steel on rubber has no difference compared to the other non-DLC versions of S05 Day & Date series watches in terms of general styling. Comes in a large size, this bold looking timepiece has a solid 44 mm round case that is 14 mm thick, along with a rotary bezel with extruded markers, which just like the screw down crown, coated with Black rubber. It has a screwed solid case back, decorated with the watchmaker’s leaping fish signature in raised pattern. The only difference would be that the stainless steel 316L used in those part of this Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-G9610 watch features DLC to improve its hardness, wear resistance, and slickness, and it has a darker color.

Allowing the watch to sits comfortably on the wrist, a soft yet fairly sturdy Black rubber bracelet that measures around 24 mm wide decently supports the watch’s weight, and it is conveniently fasten with a pin buckle clasp. This strap is decorated with the brand’s logo, and it has 8 perforations for maximum adjust-ability.

Dial. As it comes in monochrome, the timepiece dial looks simpler yet charming, especially for those who love this color theme. This seductive dial is covered with a scratch resistant sapphire that is enhanced with an anti-reflective coating to ensure its sharpness. All the hands and markers has a similar color as the background, with an exception that the date and day display notations are painted in White, just like the watchmaker’s signature at 12 o’clock positions. Its little drawback in exchange for the aesthetic look is that there is no luminescent in the hands and markers so that don’t expect too much about the read ability when the light is lacking. Despite of being all Black, this dial offers a decent night visibility as actually, that Dark Grey finish atop its applique Arabic numeral and indexes, as well as those that partly filling the hands are not just any dark colored paint, but fluorescent materials with Dark Grey daylight (body) color, in which, their emission color is greenish-yellow.

Built as a reliable timekeeper, you can expect that the Calibre AN 2834-2 TNK fitted within the watch wont ever let you down when it comes to precise timekeeping. Beating at the rhythm of 28,800 alterations per hour, this Armand Nicolet’s personalized caliber is both rugged and accurate. It contains 25 jewels, and provides at least 38 hours of power reserve when fully wound. And combined with the watch’s 300 m water resistant, you can enjoy the nice feeling of having this beauty around your wrist without being bothered by splashes of water nor rain.

Anyway, this handsome Swiss luxury watch’s suggested retail price is $3,200, which is around five hundred bucks pricier compared to the non-DLC versions. And in addition to this Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-G9610, the Nero variant of S05 Day & Date series watches is also available with leather bracelet.

Note: Thanks for Alex Tio for the correction about the holes on its strap :)
