The Watch

Here we have a 2023 Nivada F77 Black Date Automatic with a 37mm Tonneau case that flows over your wrist, thanks to the integrated bracelet, and a lug-to-lug length of 44.5mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm ensures a comfortable fit. This is a contemporary recreation of the Nivada F77 they produced in 1977, taking its design cues from the iconic Genta-designed Royal Oak. On the right side is a signed crown with deep knurling,  polished sides, and brushed top surfaces of the octagonal bezel comes complete with eight screws and holds a domed sapphire crystal above a black weave textured dial, an outer minute track surrounds chamfer edged baton indexes marking the hours, at 3 o’clock a framed date window, colour matching the dial, steel baton hands tipped with Super LumiNova are complemented by a counterweighted sweeping second hand, at noon we have the applied Nivada motif and at 6 o’clock “F77 Automatic” completes this stylish vintage inspired sports watch. On the reverse a screw-down case back with the details of the watch engraved around its edge and an embossed polished F77 Nivada motif in the centre, inside an automatic SOPROD Cal. P024, 25 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, based on the ETA 2824-2, with hand winding and hacking seconds for your convenience. The watch comes paired with its original integrated 21.5mm 3-Link brushed stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp, all links are provided, and this watch is sold with its original Nivada presentation box, swing tag and paperwork.


Personal Note

When the Nivada F77 was announced I was instantly a fan and even more impressed with the fact that Nivada offers both a date and no-date option, putting a quick end to the "debate" of which is preferred. This black dial has a subtle texture which really pops when in certain lights. I would not hesitate to add this to your collection if you are wanting something a little different that won't break the bank!


The Brand

Nivada was founded in Grenchen Switzerland as early as 1879, but officially 1926 appears to be its foundation as in 1976 they celebrated their 50th anniversary. In 1939, Nivada built up a business deal with the New York-based Croton Watch Company to enable them to import and distribute Nivada watches within the US. This successful partnership would last for many years. Nivada Grenchen was imported and sold in the US under several different brand names such as Croton Nivada, Croton Nivada Grenchen, and Croton. During the 1960s and 70s, they were not allowed to use their Nivada name in the USA due to its phonetically sounding similar to Movado, so they used Nivada Grenchen instead. In 2018, two entrepreneurs in watchmaking, Guillaume Laidet, and Remi Chabrat, decided to revive the Nivada brand with its original legacy and in 2019 they obtained the licence to use the Nivada Grenchen copyright.
