Nivada Grenchen presents a limited edition Meca-Quartz variant of its iconic Chronoking Aviator Sea Diver watch.
This timepiece houses a made in Japan meca-quartz movement that uses quartz technology for the main time functions and a mechanical module for the stopwatch functions.
Introduced in 1963, very first Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver was a highly sought after tool watch from Nivada Grenchen. It featured a legible dial with purpose-designed hands, tritium markers, integrated tachymeter scale, and a subsidiary hour-hand for dual-time zone indication. It also featured a bi-directional rotating dive bezel and a precision chronometer movement.
In 2020, Nivada Grenchen launched the re-edition of the Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver featuring the Swiss made SW510 BH b Cam operated chronograph movement.
Inside the new Nivada Chronoking beats the Seiko VK64A hybrid movement with three years of power reserve. It combines the precision of quartz with the beauty of traditional watchmaking by integrating a mechanical chronograph module.
In the new Chronoking Aviator Sea Diver Meca-Quartz watch, the black dial features three sub-dials. Super-LumiNova® has been used instead of tritium for the dial markers. The red and black central second hand smoothly sweeps around the dial when the chronograph function is on.
Water resistant to 100 meters, the 38mm stainless steel case is fitted with a black aluminum bezel with its large distinctive numerals, and a screw-in caseback.
