Review Summary:

The Armand Nicolet Men’s 8650A-GS-P965GS2 J09 Classic Automatic Two-Toned Watch is one of the watches of the famed manufacturer Armand Nicolet. It comes with a grey dial and a grey band leather band. This watch costs about $3000 less than the 9620S, but if you are not particular about the guilloche design, the 8650A is one of your best options from Armand Nicolet.

The Armand Nicolet Skeleton-Like Watch Movement

If you are familiar with Armand Nicolet watch collections, you probably know the great pride that the company has with its unique watch movement.  The company is proud to continuously employ the same vintage movement characteristic of its old collections like the Venus and the Unitas collections.

The 8650A, despite its lower price, has the same movement.  This is the watch for you if you feel great with skeleton-like movement harmonizing with your own movements.

Pros:

The 8650A is designed to be Swiss mechanical automatic and it comes with day and date functions.  Here are other good things you need to know and consider about the product before buying:

  • The window material of this watch is made of sapphire that’s anti-reflective and the display type is analog.  The display therefore is very easy to see and to read.
  • The watch’s case is made of steel and 18K gold.  The case is therefore resistant to scratching.
  • The bezel function is of the stationary type and the bezel itself is made of rose gold.
  • The total weight is about 16 ounces and therefore this watch is very light and comfortable to wear.
  • The 8650A’s water-resistant capacity is about 165 feet, just the same capacity with other more expensive Armand Nicolets such as the men’s 9620S and the women’s 7154A.  The watch is perfect for water sports.

Cons:

There is, however, one setback with regard to this watch.

  • Reviews have stated that there are really no major issues with this watch though there are minor complaints with the warranty terms and conditions.  The Armand Nicolet 8650A carries a warranty for two years but it covers only manufacturing defects.  Issues stemming from improper mishandling and repair services from unauthorized watch repair outlets are not covered.  The watch is pricier than many other branded watches so you must take proper care of it at all times.

The Timelessness of this Watch

The aesthetics of this watch are stunning and designed to be timeless.  The dimensions and design are specifically created to make an outstanding physical appearance without exaggeration.  Given all these features, this watch has been made to have an innovative look and yet have a timeless effect.  In fact, some of the components of this watch were taken from stored collections of parts in the Armand Nicolet factory.  These parts have been there in the factory since the 1950s.

Free Shipping and Returns for Armand Nicolet Watches

As you search for sites that offer this watch, do search out not only for discounts but also for free shipping and return offers.  Since you will be shelling out more than $6000 for this timepiece, it’s reasonable for you to look for ways to reduce the strain on your budget.
