Founded and still located in Tramelan, Switzerland, Armand Nicolet started his own workshop in 1875. The son of a watchmaker, Nicolet was known for creating timepieces that were precise, high quality and very beautiful. After Armand Nicolet’s death in 1939, his son Willy took control and grew the factory into one of the largest manufacturers in the country. In 1987, Willy sold the operation to watch industry veteran Rolando Braga.
Today, Armand Nicolet produces contemporary timepieces, but is perhaps best known for its ability to restore vintage movements and put them into modern watches, its Original Historical Movement (O.H.M.) collection.
