About Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Watches

Born amidst the rapid evolution of sports and instrument watches in the '60s, the Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster redefined versatility beyond typical chronographs. The original Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Watches featured meticulously crafted sharp cases with bidirectional bezels, black dials with the Nivada logo, and luminous hour markers and hands (broad arrow or batons).
This 'Super Chronograph' offered diverse functionalities like a stopwatch, 200m water resistance, tachymeter scale, and regatta countdown, serving as a versatile racing, aviator, diver, travel, and regatta timing tool.
Revived in 2018, the modern Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster beautifully pays homage to its 1960s predecessor through its faithful retention of signature elements, including the peripheral tachymeter scale, bidirectional bezels with double graduations, and the iconic wide broad arrow hands.
With a consistent water resistance rating of 100 meters across all models, the incorporation of updated mechanical components and modern materials maintains the vintage appeal while guaranteeing durability and reliability.

Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster History

The story of the Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Collection traces its roots to the Swiss town of Grenchen (Granges), where Nivada was established in 1926 by Otto Wüllimann, Hermann Schindler, and Jack Schneider.
Over its early years, Nivada set itself apart by focusing on instrument watches that offered more than just timekeeping-pioneering water resistance, automatic movements, and multifunctional chronographs, often sourcing components from renowned suppliers like Venus, Valjoux, or Landeron.
However, the 1970s quartz crisis challenged the traditional watchmaking industry, and Nivada, like many others, struggled to adapt to the rising demand for electronic and battery-powered watches. Despite this setback, the brand found a new lease on life when two watch entrepreneurs, Guillaume Laidet, with a rich background in the watch industry, and Remi Chabrat, the owner of the Montrichard Group, made the bold decision to resurrect the brand.
In 2018, this revival breathed new life into Nivada with the successful reintroduction of iconic models like the Chronomaster and the Antarctic. This marked a triumphant return for the brand, rekindling the legacy of the Chronomaster Collection and reigniting the spirit of innovation and craftsmanship that characterized Nivada's storied past.
