Vintage timepieces have been making a comeback over the past several years, and now adding to the movement is the return of the historic Swiss watchmaker Nivada Grenchen.

The brand’s resurrection is thanks to two French entrepreneurs Guillaume Laidet — who has worked at Jaeger-LeCoultre, Zenith, and founded William L. 1985 — and Remi Chabrat — who owns the private label watchmaker Montrichard Group — the duo coming together almost two years ago to discuss the project. To kickstart the company’s new life, it will be releasing an updated version of its classic Chronomaster and Antarctic collections, with pre-sales to take place in June and deliveries expected for December. All watches will be Swiss-made, with movements sourced from Sellita.

“The core idea is to respect, as much as possible, the original designs and stick to authentic specifications while offering ‘affordable’ prices,” wrote Nivada Grenchen. “In order to ensure the project’s success, they have started to share first designs on their freshly created Instagram account. The objective is to collect all the feedback from the already existing and demanding Nivada Grenchen community.”

Prices for the first releases will range from $705 USD for the time-only models to $1,955 USD for the stainless steel chronographs. If popular, the brand will also release more of its archived models as well, including the Depthmaster, Datomaster, and Travelmaster.
