The tribute would not be complete without the legendary Nivada Automatic logo at 12 o’clock and Antarctic-Diver in the unmistakable vintage script at six o'clock faithfully echoing the aesthetics of the original. The caseback is engraved with the signature emblem of the Antarctic collection: the profile of a penguin, an allegory of the great cold and a nod to the name of the collection.
The first thing you notice when you put the new Antarctic Diver on your wrist is its presence. The impression of quality is enhanced by the solid heft of its universally sized 38mm-diameter (up from 36.5mm), 12.9mm-thick case. Let’s just say you can confidently take it on any (underwater) excursion, with plenty of margin.
Slim, comfortable, built for any task, whether it’s navigating a reef or a cocktail party, it exudes casual chic with that conversation-starting vintage vibe.
