Earlier this year, we proudly announced a brand new watch with the independent brand Nivada Grenchen. A completely new model in the brand's collection, the Fratello × Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph is something special, taking inspiration from multiple points in the brand's rich history.

Thanks to its external and internal features, the Fratello × Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph is an incredibly versatile timepiece. The compact 38mm ×44.3mm size is perfect for everyone; it’s not too big or small. The chronograph complication is something most watch lovers enjoy.

Five classic dials to choose from

As clichéd as it may sound, a dial can completely transform the look of a watch. Just as a bracelet or a well-picked leather strap can too. The Fratello × Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph comes on a bullet-style steel bracelet, but you can always throw your favorite strap onto it thanks to the standard 20mm lugs. Yet, what sets this watch apart is the five different dial variations, a first in the history of Fratello collaborations.

Panda, reverse panda, tropical, black, and white; everyone can find a color or style that matches their personality. However, one common thing about all of them is the racing scale that we took from a vintage Nivada model of the 70s. The only change: we used orange instead of red for the scale and the chrono hand. After all, if it’s a Fratello watch, it must have something orange!

A touch of neo-vintage chic

While the inspiration for the dial came from one vintage model from Nivada Grenchen's archives, we reached back to another timepiece from the brand’s vintage catalog for the case concept. The rarely-seen Nivada Grenchen Chronosport's district tonneau silhouette was perfect for our vision. So, we took that case as inspiration, changed the rotating bezel to a fixed steel number, and sized the case up to a more modern 38mm.

Measuring only 13.75mm thick, the timepiece is easily wearable and extremely comfortable on all wrist sizes. The bullet-style bracelet wonderfully tapers to 16mm on the buckle end from 20mm at the lugs. A superb vintage feel that puts the focus on the watch more so than on the bracelet.
