NIVADA GRENCHEN IS BACK

Post by koimaster » August 16th 2020, 4:06pm

Reviving the Glory of Nivada Grenchen

Nivada timepieces have been in the watchmaking industry since 1926, the year when Jacob Schneider first created it in Granges (Grenchen). In 1976, his son Max took over the business. In the United States of America (USA), the Croton Company distributed all Nivada watches. The timepieces can have either the Nivada or Croton signature, or both.

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 the members of the American Navy’s Deep Freeze 1 during their expedition to the South Pole from 1955 to 1956.

Nice looking watches. Very classy. Price might be a bit high but they do look nice.

Yes, they do look a lot like a number of other watch brands out there. But they aren't hideous or ridiculous nor do they suffer from some treacly back story that makes you want to vomit.

I've never forgotten this very generous gift, back in 2010. The story is here, and appropriate to the thread :-).
