The new limited edition Chronomaster ‘Big Eye’ Yachting watch was born from a partnership between Nivada Grenchen and Analog:Shift, the vintage division of the Watches of Switzerland Group.
Marking the beginning of a long-term alliance, the Chronomaster‘Big Eye’ Yachting is a limited edition of 100 pieces.
As with all Nivada Grenchen watches, this Chronomaster boasts an exceptional level of quality and precision. Its proportions and design, with its broad arrow-style hands, giving off both a sporty and casual chic vibe, take us back to the 70s, when the tool watch became the elegant addition to every wrist.
Inside the 38mm stainless case with polished and satin-brushed finishes beats a manually-wound Sellita SW510 BH B chronograph movement with a 63-hour power reserve.
The white/gray dial is set under a domed sapphire crystal that echoes the aesthetic of the acrylic used on the original, while offering much improved scratch resistance. The dial itself is clean and uncluttered, making it very easy to read.
With the chronograph function, the Chronomaster ‘Big Eye’ Yachting watch can track up to thirty minutes with the bright orange central seconds hand. The small counter at three o’clock counts the minutes, while the small black counter at nine o’clock counts the seconds.
It also has a tachymeter function, which uses the scale on the outside of the dial and by the minute track; it includes markers for fifths of a second.
The small counter at three o’clock also features an eye-catching two-tone blue and orange segment for counting down the first ten minutes. This is a feature originally designed for yachting (Yachting Timer).
The case is topped with a unidirectional rotating bezel with an aluminum insert. Secured with a solid, screw-in case-back in stainless steel, this timepiece is water-resistant up to 100 meters.
The Chronomaster ‘Big Eye’ Yachting model comes fitted on an ergonomic and elegant ‘beads of rice’ steel bracelet, reinforcing the genuine vintage look.
Created exclusively in partnership with ANALOG:SHIFT, the watch has a retail price of USD 1,995.
