NIVADA GRENCHEN

Reviving heritage with modern appeal

Nivada Grenchen watches have been part of the Swiss watchmaking landscape since 1926, when Jacob Schneider founded the brand in Grenchen. In 1976, his son Max took over the company. In the United States, the Croton Company was the official distributor of all Nivada Grenchen watches, which explains why some timepieces bear the Croton signature. In 1930, Nivada Grenchen was one of the first companies to manufacture automatic watches.

Launched in 1961, the Chronomaster, a chronograph water-resistant to 200 meters, was one of Nivada Grenchen’s biggest bestsellers until it was discontinued in late 1970s. The Swiss brand had always been renowned for performance and reliability in extreme conditions. In 2018, after years of dormancy, the brand was reborn under the impetus of Guillaume Laidet with two iconic models, including the famous Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver.
