Nivada was founded in 1926 by Jacob Schneider in Granges (Grenchen). In 1930 Nivada was one of the first companies to manufacture automatic watches. This led to the creation of Nivada’s first waterproof automatic watch called the Antarctic in 1950. The watch was worn by members of the American Navy’s Deep Freeze 1 during their expedition to the South Pole from 1955 to 1956. Among numerous models, the most widely known is the Chronomaster, a chronograph with 200-metre water-resistance. It came in three distinct formats: Chronomaster, Aviator and Sea Diver. In 1964 the Depthomatic became the first diver’s watch with a depth indicator or bathymeter.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
