Titanium and Stone Dials, Meet The New Versions of the Nivada F77 Automatic

The popular series expanded with added models in titanium and exciting dial options.

In 2023, Nivada Grenchen delighted enthusiasts with a faithful recreation of its original F77, initially introduced in 1977 to rival popular sports watches of the era, with a steel construction with an integrated bracelet. The relaunched F77 series brought back with the same intent decades later, featured versions sporting blue and black dials adorned with a basket weave pattern, with a smoked brown variant added later. These models were presented in 37mm stainless steel cases with integrated bracelets, offering date and no-date options.

There’s exciting news for those who felt Nivada Grenchen overlooked the rising demand for lightweight titanium watches or desired more diversity in dial designs. Nivada has just unveiled four new iterations of the F77 Automatic, introducing a titanium series alongside new dial variants.

The new Nivada Grenchen F77 to garner significant attention is undoubtedly the one featuring a grade 5 titanium case and bracelet, paired with a dial crafted from genuine meteorite. Each dial displays unique metallic grey geometric patterns and textures, making each F77 Titanium Grade 5 “Meteorite” watch truly one-of-a-kind. This variant will be exclusively available for pre-order via the brand’s website, commencing April 7.

Another noteworthy addition to the F77 lineup is the “Anthracite” edition, which boasts a titanium construction and a basket-weave patterned dial in anthracite grey. These two titanium iterations maintain the exact specifications of their stainless steel counterparts, including a water resistance of 100m. However, the weight is significantly reduced, dropping from 126 grams in steel to just 86 grams in titanium.

The following two references to join the Nivada Grenchen F77 Automatic lineup underscore the captivating allure of stainless steel watches paired with blue-toned dials. However, the brand took it further by not just offering various shades of blue but adorning the stainless steel F77 models with aventurine glass cut and lapis lazuli dials. Despite these variations, all new versions – Meteorite, Anthracite, Aventurine and Lapis lazuli – maintain applied baton-style hour indices and signature hands with Super-LumiNova luminescence. Notably, the date feature is omitted to ensure nothing detracts from the creative presentation of the dials.

All watches in the F77 Automatic collection are equipped with the Soprod P024 movement, a reputable Swiss movement maker’s version of the ETA 2824. This self-winding calibre operates at 28,800 vibrations/hour and has a power reserve of 38 hours when fully wound. The Aventurine and Lapis Lazuli stainless steel editions are priced at EUR 1,530, while the titanium Anthracite variant is priced at EUR 1,610. The limited edition titanium Meteorite model carries a price tag of EUR 1,875.
