Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver with Sarcon Dial
Quite a mouthful, this Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver lists off almost every model created by watch companies from the past century. With crisp and sharp case, this watch is in fantastic condition. The watch has a special dial bearing the name, ‘SARCON’ which is a South African based construction company. Besides the Sarcon name, the dial has another unique feature that may be overlooked. The chronograph minute subdial usually has a countdown of 5 minutes in red, but this one has it in yellow but whats even more interesting is that it is luminous. The watch is housing the very reliable Valjoux 23 manual wind chronograph movement. Fitted on a black and red nato strap which accentuates the red seconds hand. With an all stainless steel case, the watch also has a stainless steel rotating bezel with anodized aluminium bezel insert with hour and minute indicators.
The dial is matte black in color with printed hour markers and Tritium painted on top. The Hour, Minute, Seconds and Chronograph minute hands are all painted white with the Hour and Minute hands having pumpkin orange luminous compound. The Chronograph Seconds hand is painted a rather contrasting red.
