In the 1990-s, Nivrel introduced into the world of watchmaking a replica model of an old hand-wind chronograph dating back to the 1940ies.
The timepiece was available in a limited edition of 100 pieces, having enjoyed immediate success. Nowadays, the watch is highly appreciated by collectors.
This year, Nivrel has unveiled a second model of the chronograph. The Nivrel Le Chronograph Replique II has been created in two versions. Both versions are limited to 50 pieces. The original timepiece had accommodated a mechanical winding chronograph movement - caliber Landeron 48.
The replica versions are also equipped with a mechanical winding chronograph movement - caliber Landeron 248. The movement is relevant to the same product family developed in the period from 1933 till 1970.
The 17-jewel movement, beating at 18.000 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a 43-hour power-reserve. The mechanism reveals blued screws and gold-plated bridges.
The timepiece is available with either a black or beige-colored dial.
The Nivrel Le Chronograph Replique II provides the following functions - hours, minutes, small seconds, and chronograph.
The case of the watch measures 42 mm in diameter and is crafted from stainless steel. The case construction incorporates a sapphire crystal and a water-resistant crown and a stainless steel case back with sapphire crystal. The watch is 50-meter water-resistant.
The chronograph watch is secured to the wrist on a Louisiana Alligator leather strap fitted with a double folding clasp.
