In collaboration with Hong Kong based watch brand UNDONE, Nivada Grenchen presents a unique collaborative edition of Depthmaster, better known as the “Pac-Man”.
Introduced in 1965, the Nivada Depthmaster was the very first dive watch to be waterproof to 1,000 meters – or 3,300 feet. This heavy-duty diver came in a cushion-shaped steel case with a diameter of 38mm, a substantial crown, a thick metal bezel with a knurled edge and no insert, and beefy lugs.
It also stands out with the ‘Deco’ font used for the cardinal markers. This legendary dive watch is also known as “Pac-Man”, thanks to its Pac-Man style hour-markers at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock.
Nivada, together with the team at UNDONE, has created a Depthmaster that truly gives meaning to the “Pac-Man” moniker. It has a 39mm diameter black DLC-treated stainless steel case with sapphire crystal glass and helium release valve.
Proposed in a limited edition of only 200 timepieces, this timepiece comes with a matt-black textured dial with the emblematic “Pac-Man Yellow” theme. The steel case-back highlights the text “NIVADA GRENCHEN x UNDONE” in the same yellow shade.
The watch is powered by the SOPROD P024 automatic movement. This new Depthmaster is water resistant to 1000 meters.
This new Nivada Grenchen x UNDONE Depthmaster watch is available in a very accessible retail price of CHF 950.
