Iconic NIVADA Grenchen Aviator Sea Diver Chronograph CASD, Ref. 8719 M 8221, powered by manual winding Venus 210 calibre.

Comes with its original manual and price tag.

Black with applied luminous baton indexes, outer 1/5th seconds divisions and outermost white tachometer scale, subsidiary dials for the seconds, 30 minutes register with yachting timer indicated in red. Luminous broad-arrow hands. M. Cal. Venus 210, rhodium plated, 17 jewels, straight line lever escapement, monometallic balance, shock absorber, self-compensating blued steel Breguet balance spring. S: Leather vintage NOS strap, steel buckle. Dial and caseback signed, case numbered. Diam. 38 mm. Thickness 12.5 mm. 

In the early 1960s, only one chronograph managed to combine nine functions into a single watch: the Nivada Grenchen Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver. The Chronomaster, with its 100-meter water resistance (328 ft, 10 bar), was the first timepiece to combine a stopwatch with a tachymeter scale, diving watch, pilot’s watch, timer, yacht timer, and GMT display; not to mention, of course telling the current time. In print ads, Nivada promoted the Chronomaster with slogans such as “Super-Chronograph” and “The world’s busiest watch – has more uses than ever counted.”

Watch is in overall good condition 8/10, running and ready to wear or gift!
