Limited to 50 pieces, this timepiece retains some key features of the original 1970s Nivada chronograph. The new model however comes with a number of changes in terms of the dimensions, functions and color theme. Firstly, the historic watch has a 40mm diameter case where as the Fratello × Nivada Grenchen watch measures only 38mm. Secondly, the red dial accents of the dial have been replaced with the signature Fratello-orange.
