THE RETURN OF NIVADA GRENCHEN – By N. Nair
Buoyed by the interest shown by the collector community, the brand known for classics like the Chronomaster is making a comeback.
The company’s most famous model was undoubtedly the Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver, a manual-winding chronograph introduced in 1961 and produced for the next 10 odd years. Such is the watch’s popularity that writers Anthony Marquié and Grégoire Rossier even produced a book Chronomaster Only, now considered the go-to reference for Chronomaster collectors. Marquié and Rossier are also the duo behind Moonwatch Only, the seminal tome for Omega Speedmaster collectors.
