    Armand Nicolet L10 Good ?

    Hi guys ! I'm new on this thread. I just wanna know more about these brand Armand Nicolet, but somehow there are less info out there. I come across their old model L10, it looks pretty nice to me and i'm kinda interested to get 1. Isn't it a good watch ? How about their watch movement? Hopefully I can get more info here. Thank you.

    I don't know about that model but it looks very nice indeed, and what looks to be a very interesting movement. Perhaps someone else with more knowledge of vintage movements can comment. I have had a different model Armand Nicolet and found the quality to be excellent. RRP's are a bit high IIRC but they are not alone there. Pics would help generate interest, but here at least is a link for the benefit of others:

    Very pretty watch indeed



    I know nothing about the movement (which is from the 60s) or brand though I'm afraid.

    The FHF 72 in its time was a quality movement with screw balance and a free oscillating spring to avoid isochronism loss(es). However, it is a slow beater at 18.000 b/h.

    Last I heard, they were making the round watches for Gevril, that was 9 years ago.

    They are a good but relatively lesser known brand. I own two and have found them to be of excellent quality for the price.

    This is the one I used to have. Lovely watch and one of the very few that I regret selling. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if I found one I liked at the right price.

    Oh, wow GlennO I see why the regret, that's nice!. Hope you find another with your specs. My Ludwig is the only piece I shouldn't have given up so had to purchase another at a 40% price increase from my initial one, no one confuses me with Einstein . . . .
