It's a great looking watch. Takes some cues from the Blanpain Fifty Fathoms. Uses an ETA 2892, the GMT hand can be operated independently and can be used as a second time zone. The watch keeps amazing time, as I write this, it has gained 3 seconds in 2 days. As you can see from the specs, it is classically sized. The lume is just okay, nothing to write home about. The fit and finish is very good, look at the bezel, I like the way it's done. The combination of polished and brushed finishes is well balanced. Has a signed clasp.
Get to the point
Pros: Good looking watch, 200M water resistant, keeps great time. Independent GMT hand. Bezel moves solidly and has no play. Armand Nicolet has great customer service. Out of service, just about anyone can work on a 2892.
Cons: No lumed pip. The crown could be better. Though AN has great customer service, it is Tramelan. If you need to get service watch needs to go oversea, but they do pick up the shipping if in warranty. No US distributor.
