This vintage, 1960’s, stainless steel NIVADA TARAVANA auto racing chronograph is truly spectacular and exotic! The original contrasting dial with black sub-registers, and bright orange accents; enhanced with sunken tachymetre bezel and date at 6:00 is truly beautiful to gaze upon! The screw back, signed stainless steel case measures 35.8mm. and 13.2mm. thick, including the crystal; scratchless, glistening like platinum! Notice the detail that has gone into producing the baton hands; providing more contrast for easy readability! The NIVADA, signed, manual winding valjoux 7734 movement was recently cleaned and overhauled…accurate! Notice the rally style racing band we have installed on this watch. We visually seek out fine vintage watches and is rare to find one so absolutely great looking! The history of Nivada can be traced back to the early 19th century to a small locality called Grenchen, northwest of Switzerland. Interestingly, the company name has been revived and still produces fine watches to this day.
