March LA.B AM2 Vintage March 2024: titanium in a very limited edition

Posted by lifata on March 18th, 2024

The French company March LA.B is offering, in March, for the fifth consecutive year, a new watch in a (very) limited edition. Why in March? Because it is both the birth month of Alain Marhic, the founder of the brand, and his lucky number (3). This year, it’s a titanium AM2 which is offered in… only 133 examples.

To present this fifth opus from 2024, March LA.B highlights the fact that this new AM2 is entirely – or almost – made of titanium. This material is found in its 39 mm diameter case (including case back), its crown, and its new bracelet (20 mm lug width).

The AM2 “Millésime March 2024” is also light, weighing 91 grams (39 grams less than its steel equivalent), and its dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal lowered by 0.9 mm for a case of a total thickness of 11.5 mm.

Let's focus on the whole thing, described by March LA.B as monochrome even if the second hand is green. The dial is matte gray guilloché with the signature intertwined lines of the March LA.B logo. And the hands as well as the hour marker points are equipped with luminescent material (Super-Luminova) for good readability at night.

The AM2 “Millésime Mars 2024” is powered by a Swiss La Joux Perret G100 automatic caliber, assembled in France, which offers approximately 68 hours of power reserve.

It oscillates at 28,800 alt/h, integrates 24 jewels, and has an announced daily drift of -4 to +6 seconds per day, i.e. the same tolerances as the COSC. Please note, however, that this watch replicas uk is not certified by the COSC, the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Authority.

Finally, let's focus on the new bracelet of this AM2: it is in 2 parts, entirely in titanium, with brushed H-shaped links. Interchangeable without tools, it is equipped with a so-called "jewelry" buckle, inspired by buckles. Fake watches from the 1970s, which requires some time to get used to before being pleasant to use.
