In the 1930’s Armand Nicolet began using the most technical ateliers in the T1 process. The company focused on creating complicated mechanical movements and started selling and distributing them to other famed Swiss watchmakers. In the late 1970’s the quartz crisis had forced many Swiss luxury brands to close business. Armand Nicolet, under the direction of Willy Nicolet, managed to thrive and remain stable. Armand Nicolet values old movements and considers them treasures in an industry that views them as outdated.
