Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-P160NG4 44mm S05 Day & Date Nero Automatic for men

More than just a cool, fashionable wrist accessory, this masculine timepiece is also a practical and reliable timekeeper, which quality is more than just a satisfactory. It boasts superior Swiss construction that is guaranteed to be watertight to a decent depth of 300 meters, comprising enduring materials and quality components that are executed with such precision craftsmanship, and inside, it packs the self-winding Calibre AN 2834-2 TNK, a Swiss automatic movement that is not only accurate, but also fairly rugged as well.

Typical to the brand’s S05 collection line-up, this Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-P160NG4 is a large size (or you may say an XL) for men’s average wrist. It has the same general design as the "regular" S05 Day & Date, in which, it sports a sturdy round case that has a diameter of 44mm and approximately 14mm thick, and features an uni-directional rotating bezel. Needless to say, those dark colored parts are made of premium grade stainless steel, that is further enhanced with DLC to improve its hardness, wear resistance, and slickness for the sake of longevity.

The back of the case is solid, covered with a screwed-in type caseback that is engraved with markers, and decorated with the watchmaker’s signature leaping fish insignia in raised pattern. Its brushed rotary bezel is coated with Black rubber, and features engraved 60-minute diving scale. And, at the right hand side of the case, there lays a DLC steel screw-down crown that is similar to the bezel, also coated with Black rubber.

Dial. Encased by the bezel, is a monochromatic dial that is protected with an anti-glare treated sapphire crystal. 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. 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.

Speaking a bit about the mechanical movement inside, the Calibre AN 2834-2 TNK is an "in-house" movement that is built (or to be exact, personalized) by Armand Nicolet based on the caliber ETA 2834-2. This large yet fairly thin self-winding automatic movement is beating at the harmonic rhythm of 28,800 alterations per hour, and it has a single barrel that when fully wound, provides at least 38 hours of power reserve. The AN 2834-2 TNK is not a Chronometer grade, however, you can expect that it could performs at least at the accuracy of an elaborate grade --up to on par with a top-grade, which is around ±7 secs per day at worst. The movement itself contains 25 jewels, and it also features Incabloc shock protection.

As a nice finishing touch, allowing the watch to sits comfortably on the wrist, a supple yet supportive thick Black leather bracelet is there to offers a decent counter-balance to the case’s weight. This nice looking perforated strap measures around 24 mm wide, and has a sufficient length to accommodates up to 8-inches wrist’s circumference. It is made of genuine calfskin leather, decorated with contrast stitching details, comes equipped with a traditional pin and buckle clasp, and is adjustable via 7 perforations.

Anyway, just like the rubber bracelet version Nero, this men’s DLC steel on leather 44mm Armand Nicolet 9610N-NR-P160NG4 S05 Day & Date Nero watch’s original manufacturer suggested retail price is $3,200 --which is around five hundred bucks pricier compared to the non-DLC versions.
