Size: 38 mm
The Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Big Eye Yachting is the latest version of Nivada’s Chronomaster. It’s a water-resistant chronograph that was introduced in 1963 and can be considered as one of Nivada Grenchen’s all-time hits. And this new one is made in collaboration with Analog:Shift, which is the vintage division of the Watches of Switzerland Group, to boost worldwide retail outlets.
This new version has a 38-millimeter 316L stainless steel case with a white dial featuring two sub-dials. One for the 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The silvery hands and markers also help the dial to look clean and uncluttered which makes easy to read. All of these are set under a double domed sapphire crystal glass.
The Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Big Eye Yachting is limited 100 pieces
The noticeable two-tone blue and orange small counter is a feature originally designed for yachting (as a yachting timer), where the name Chronomaster ‘Big Eye’ Yachting comes from. These seconds count down the time before the start of a yacht race. The original Chronomaster from 1963, also 38 millimeters, has the same looks, only with a black dial and plexi glass.
The original is a hand-winder, inside this Big Eye Yachting is also a hand-wound movement. It is a Sellita SW510 M BH B caliber which delivers a power reserve of 63 hours and drives the hours, minutes, small seconds and chronograph.
The Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Big Eye Yachting is limited to 100 pieces and can only be bought online at www.analogshift.com.
