There’s no scarcity of dial colour variations. In case your strategy to dials colours is extra on the conservative facet, then the all-black, panda and reverse-panda dial iterations will most actually communicate to you. However Fratello and Nivada Grenchen even have a few different dial colours that one among which lean into the extra modern with its stark all-white dial, and the opposite which matches full-on classic. The latter is a “tropical” brown dial and matching sub registers. I have to admit, I used to be by no means one for brown dials, however this tropical dial is doing it for me. In opposition to the steeled out case, white-orange accents and a paper mache texture, it’s completely a putting dial.
Just like the case, the dial pulls from a classic Nivada Grenchen mannequin, this time a special variation of a Racing Chronograph. The Fratello x Nivada Grenchen takes the identical race checker design encircling the dial and applies it to this present piece, however as an alternative of pink accents, we get a few of that Fratello flare courtesy of its enticing orange accents. The metal bezel with tachymeter scale was additionally a joint choice between the 2 making this specific chronograph all of the extra distinct amongst different Nivada Grenchen chronographs.
The motion follows go well with with the classic theme. To energy the Racing Chronograph, you’ll must manually wind the crown to get the Sellita SW520 M b gears shifting. On a full wind, the Racing Chronograph is anticipated to run for roughly 63 hours, and due to the sapphire display-caseback, you’ll get to understand all of the shifting components, together with a signed rotor completed with Côte de Géneve stripes.
