The NH Type 2A is a hand-winding timepiece incorporating vintage-inspired design cues from the 1950s. However, the case size isn’t exactly following the standard of the era as the watch measures 37mm across and 10.7mm thick — a modern sizing while maintaining a relatively compact footprint. The case is made of 904L stainless steel. 904L steel is highly corrosion-resistant and extremely robust, which inevitably means the material is harder to machine, and only a few manufacturers such as Rolex utilize this steel for their case construction. The sharp lugs with pronounced edges and the large, easy-to-operate crown enhance the vintage aesthetics of the piece.
