Welcome to This Week in Watches for May 2, 2020. Today, we’re about fun and I think we’ve got the correct watches to turn that scowl potential gain down.
Nivada Grenchen Returns — That’s Fun!
Speaking of fun, Nivada Grenchen is back because of crafted by a couple French business visionaries. They’ll be kicking things off with current reissues of the Antarctica and the Chronomaster. The Chronomaster is quite possibly the most well known semi-reasonable vintage chronographs under the sun and it came in heaps of variations. Truth be told, it came in such countless variations that it roused its own reference book called . Orders will start in June and conveyances are normal for December. Figure on €1,600 on a Tropic and €1,800 on globules of rice. Manual and automatics will be accessible on the 38.3mm chronos. We’ll audit all the variations when more data comes to light.
The Antarctica is a pleasant piece in the Explorer vein. What most don’t know is that Nivada really worked with the US Navy during the 1950s during its Antarctic investigation missions. The new pieces look loyal and at 38mm are mindfully raised to current size. Expect date and no date forms just as a large group of dial tones. Valuing will be in the €650 range and for programmed models. Visit for more information.
Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Italia
During the Panerai prime, a pile of fascinating Italian watches came our direction. One such watch came from Giuliano Mazzuoli as the Manometro. For goodness’ sake, this watch was roused by a pressing factor measure. That’s sort of absurd, however it some place worked (aside: I wager Gerard had one of these or thought aboout it)! Discussion about fun! Today’s Manometro commends the 75th commemoration of a free Italy. The 45mm steel lugless watch has an epoxy top case in the shades of the Italian banner. An ETA 2824-2 forces pieces accessible with either a dark or white dial. Estimating isn’t referenced, however typical pure models sell for €2,500 so utilize that as a ballpark. The watches aren’t up on the very yet.

Ok, I advised you to shed those blues and have some good times, yet here I am with a blue watch! Here’s a wild one… The Chronoswiss Open Gear ReSec shows up with an electric blue CVD-covered pure 44mm case. The brand’s notable C.301 controller development beats away and is noticeable by means of the front and back. Likewise, the dial is guilloched by hand and has gold plated components. Included is a similarly brilliant hornback crocodile tie. €10,000 is the cost of passage for one of 50 pieces. More data is accessible on the .
Ollech & Wajs Ocean Graph
I’m glad to give Ollech & Wajs some space in TWIW. All things considered, they’re making veils to help in the battle against COVID-19. They’ve sent us expression of a fun new delivery in the Ocean Graph. As a matter of fact, the watch harkens back to a 1968 model by a similar name.

Roger Dubuis Excalibur Twofold
Our last passage on TWIW is truly fun since it makes me think of Tron. Simply take a gander at the pictures in obscurity and you’ll get my meaning. The 8 piece restricted version has a 45mm case and bezel produced using 99.5% silica Mineral Composite Fiber (MCF). It’s another material for watches and Dubuis utilizes a sheet shaping compound cycle to do the forming.
Dubuis additionally discloses to us that they’ve applied lume to every edge of MCF and that the lume is another compound that endures some 60% longer than ordinary. What’s more is that the white FKM lash additionally has lume in its edges. The lume is made of — hang tight for it — “LumiSuperBiwiNova”, so it sparkles also. Also, in case we fail to remember, a twofold flying tourbillon is on time keeping obligation. Estimating is $276,000 and if you’re intrigued, head for more information.
