This new version of the Nivada Chronoking is flamboyantly 70s, setting all the codes of this global success on fire. Tan sub-dials – with the telltale art deco-style “Newman” typography – that light up the black dial, the minute track an orange gradient; the combination creates an unusual sense of depth.
The Nivada Chronoking, assembled in Switzerland, houses the tried and trusted Seiko VK63A meca-quartz movement.
Press the stopwatch pusher and watch the chronograph hand sweep over the dial with that same smoothness we love in a mechanical watch. The meca-quartz movement combines the precision of quartz with the feel of a self-winding mechanical movement, the best of old-school and avant-garde. The quartz module keeps the time, while the mechanical assembly keeps the chronograph running smoothly.
That’s why they are often referred to as hybrid movements.
