This Super Antarctic reissue also started on Instagram, following a post of one of our great followers who had the great idea to share his vintage timepiece with us. We shared it in the stories and got so many messages that we knew it was our mission to make it again with the same original spirit and guts. But with modern standards (Sapphire Glass) and Swiss automatic movement (Soprod P024) with screw-down crown offering a 10 ATM water resistance. The Super Antarctic 3.6.9 is a faithful reedition of the vintage one with two options, a matte black dial or a tropical dial, and a Swiss Super luminova, and for more authenticity, we have added an aging effect to the dial and hand. Diameter is contained to 38 mm and lugs to lugs to 45 mm with a great thickness of 12 mm. You will notice the legendary gold medallion on the caseback.

Born from an original exploration

Our Super Antarctic is the not-so-distant cousin of the original Nivada Antarctic collection launched in 1950. The original rose to fame when it was used by members of the American Navy’s Deep Freeze 1 Task Force during their expeditions in the South Pole (1955-56). It was noted as being reliable and robust enough to perform in the most extreme conditions. Today’s Super Antarctic is an evolution from the original Antarctic keeping close to the 50s’ lines & design. Just like the original Antarctics, we’ve added the 1957 International Geophysical Medallion directly on the case-back of all our modern Super Antarctics.

Swiss Power & Heritage

Originally designed and manufactured in Grenchen, Switzerland we’ve kept true to our roots. Our Super Antarctic is powered by the Swiss-made Soprod P024 3 hands automatic wind. All of our watches are made in Switzerland in true Nivada Grenchen authenticity and quality standards. Featuring a 100m (10 ATM) water resistance & a screw-down crown, you’ll be ready for any water: whether liquid or solid.

A true 1950's kid

The Super Antarctic features a true 1950's vibe thanks to its unique lollipop hour hand & large sword minute hand combo. Complemented by the (almost) oversized triangle index markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12’o clock, you’ll clearly understand why this watch was used in conditions as harsh as the South Pole. Both dial & hands work together to provide superb legibility and elegance
