About Nivada Grenchen Watches

Nivada Grenchen timepieces have been part of the Swiss watchmaking landscape since 1926, when Jacob Schneider founded the brand in Grenchen. His son Max took over the company in 1976. The brand’s official distributor in the US was the Croton Company, which explains why some timepieces bear the Croton signature or both the Croton and Nivada Grenchen logos. In 1930, Nivada Grenchen was one of the first companies to manufacture automatic watches.

This led in 1950 to the creation of Nivada Grenchen’s first water-resistant automatic watch: the Antarctic.

The Chronomaster was one of Nivada Grenchen’s biggest successes until the late 1970s. The Swiss brand was known for the performance and reliability of its timekeepers, even under the most extreme conditions. 1963 saw the launch of the first Chronomaster, a dive chronograph rated to a depth of 200 meters (about 600 feet). In 2018, after years of dormancy and under the impetus of Guillaume Laidet, the brand made a spectacular comeback with two iconic models, the Antarctic and the Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver.
