First batch of Ver A & Ver B are booked. All Ver A & Ver B orders placed now will ship in March-April 2023.

The Nivada Grenchen x Worn & Wound Datomaster VK64 was created as an accessible, modern counterpart to the Valjoux 72 Chronomaster, and to celebrate the Sii (Seiko Instruments Inc.) VK mecaquartz movements. The Datomaster features a 36mm x 43.5mm x 12mm case and a dual register design with a date at six for a truly classic chronograph style.

The Nivada Grenchen x Worn & Wound Datomaster VK64 features the racing-dial layout and dark palette from the V72 Chronomaster, but in two versions. Ver A sports a fog-gray surface with black sub-dials, a black chapter ring, and a mix of khaki, and deep red. The hour and minute hands are in red, while the chronograph seconds hand and sub-dial hands ar cyan. At six, the date is rendered in red on black, for a dark, stylish accent.

Ver B has the same colors, but in an “inverse” setup. The dial surface is black, while the sub-dials and chapter are in cool, fog-gray. The various indexes are in khaki, deep red, a black. The hour, minute, and sub-dial hands bring in a deep mustard tone, while the chronograph seconds is cyan, standing out above all else. Both versions come on a medium brown rally strap made from tumbled leather with a pronounced grain.

The Nivada Grenchen x Worn & Wound Datomaster VK64 Ver A and B are limited to a 72-hour order window starting December 7th, 2022, at 12PM ET and will end December 10th, 2022, at 12PM ET. All watches sold in that time frame will be produced*, and no more.

The first 50 of each color will ship by mid-January, with the remainder starting to ship in March-April, 2023. *Please note that due to cancellations, watches might come back into stock after the 72-hour window.

About Nivada Grenchen

Nivada Grenchen timepieces have been in the watchmaking industry since 1926, the year when Jacob Schneider first created it in Granges (Grenchen). In 1976, his son Max took over the business. In the United States of America (USA), the Croton Company distributed all Nivada Grenchen watches. The timepieces can have either the Nivada Grenchen or Croton signature, or both.

In 1930, Nivada Grenchen was one of the first companies to manufacture automatic watches. This led to the creation of Nivada Grenchen’s first waterproof automatic watch called the Antarctic in 1950. The watch was worn by the members of the American Navy’s Deep Freeze 1 during their expedition to the South Pole from 1955 to 1956.
