About the Model

The Chronomaster model wasn’t just a chronograph.

It was more like the Super-Chronograph. It in fact had an astonishing number of functions. Such a purpose is accurately reflected in the model’s name: CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA DIVER, which suggests a clientele of professional racing drivers, pilots and divers, as well as the multiple functions evoked in the advertising of the 1960s: THE WORLD’S BUSIEST WATCH – HAS MORE USES THAN EVER COUNTED.

The models fitted with the Valjoux 23 caliber are the third representatives of the Chronomaster dynasty (after the Venus 210 and the Valjoux 92).

This development coincided with relatively major changes to the dial and hands. The dials got new typography for the subdials with simplified scales and the numerals the conventional way up. The broad arrow hands changed to the more contrasting white baton hands, while lollipop, followed by triangular sweep hands indicated the chronograph seconds.

About the Brand

Nivada, also called Nivada Grenchen, was founded in Grenchen, Switzerland in 1926 by Otto Wüllimann, Hermann Schindler and Jakob Schneider. In the first 50 years of its life, the company developed a wide range of watches, housing calibers supplied by various Swiss movement manufacturers. It then began to offer several professional watches in its col¬lection. These include the Depthmaster, waterproof to 1,000 meters and the Chronomaster, a super-chronograph with a lot of fuctions. In the 1970s, Nivada failed to withstand the quartz and oil crisis and remain silent until its rebirth in 2020.
