In partnership with Fratello, Nivada Grenchen has created a new chronograph watch inspired by a vintage timepiece made in the 1970s. The Fratello x Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph is available in five different dial variations.
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.
Finally, the new watch comes with an external tachymeter bezel in steel where as the historic model features an external count-down bezel mounted on the case and tachymeter scale on the dial.
This racing chronograph is available in five dial colors: Full Black, Grey, Tropical Brown, Panda (black dial with silver counters) and the Reverse Panda with white color dial with black counters.
The Fratello x Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph houses the Swiss Made Sellita SW510 M b manual-winding chronograph movement. This 23 jewel calibre has a beating rate of 28’800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). It offers a power reserve of 63 hours.
Fratello will offer 10 pieces of each dial variation (50 pieces in total) for pre-order exclusively from the Fratello Shop on Monday, March 20th at 4:00 PM CET, for one week only. The pre-order window will close on 26th March at 00:00 AM CET.
