Super Antarctic 3.6.9 Brown No Vintage Effect - White Luminous - Nivada Grenchen

Continuing the Antarctic legacy

The first Nivada Grenchen Antarctic models appeared on the market back in the 1950s, as the company’s first water resistant automatic watch. The Antarctic became famous for accompanying the US Navy’s first expedition to the South Pole led by Admiral Richard Byrd thus gaining a reputation for durability and reliability. Now, Nivada Grenchen has rekindled the Antarctic’s spirit with a brand-new collection inspired by the original design(s). Built to conquer any challenge, the Antarctic boasts shock resistant and anti-magnetic properties, ensuring it can withstand anything you throw at it.

Made for today’s explorer

Nivada Grenchen reignites the spirit of exploration with the Super Antarctic. This modern take on mid-century classic boasts a highly wearable 38mm stainless steel case (45mm lug to-lug) and a comfortable 11mm thickness. The clean dial, available in a choice of 3-6-9 or all-indexes layout, features vintage-inspired fonts for both numerals and the Nivada brand name, evoking the adventurous spirit of the past. But the Super Antarctic isn’t just about nostalgia. Powering the timepiece is a highly reliable Swiss-made Soprod P024 automatic movement, offering a 38-hour power reserve to keep you going on any adventure. A range of dial colors and a variety of straps allow you to tailor of the Super Antarctic to your unique style, making it the perfect companion for any exploration session, big or small.

Antarctic Spider - Nivada Grenchen

The absolute showstopper

For those who are looking for something edgier with a distinct avant-garde feeling, Nivada Grenchen offers the Spider timepieces within the same Antarctic model lineup. Inspired by a bold 1960s model, the Spider exudes vintage charm with its unique dial layout reminiscent of a long-legged arachnid. Nivada has included practical features like a date window at 3 o’clock, while a built-in cyclops lens in the crystal magnifies the date for easy reading – just like on the original model. Beyond its retro look, the Spider boasts a contemporary 38mm satin brushed stainless case (45mm lug-to-lug) with a thickness of 11.5mm. Powering this timepiece is a reliable Soprod P024 caliber with a 38-hour power reserve.

Antarctic Diver - Nivada Grenchen

More old school cool

Built for the depths, the Nivada Grenchen Antarctic Diver is your modern day dive companion. Based on the brand’s legacy of dive watches from the 1950s and 60s, the Antarctic Diver reimagines the classic design with a focus on modern performance. Featuring a slightly larger 38mm stainless steel case (45mm lug-to-lug) and a comfortable 12.9mm thickness, this watch is built to withstand the elements. The highlight of the Antarctic Diver is undoubtedly the fully lumed ceramic bezel with a clear 60 minute scale, ensuring perfect underwater legibility. Reliability is key, and the Antarctic Diver is powered by a robust Soprod P024 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve. Nivada offers the watch with or without a date window (complete with a magnifying lens.)
