This remarkable watch is a very special piece, it is a solid 18K Gold Nivada chronograph running a Nivada branded valjoux 23 movement dating to circa 1959.
The watch is New Old Stock, showing no signs of wear other than some minor storage marks on the case and one small dink. The watch is a thing of beauty, it really is. The stunning shaped case lugs really make the watch stand out and the perfect multi colored dial is absolutely pristine and flawless. The very rare valjoux 23 movement (most Nivada chronographs where Landeron based) is perfect and unused, although fully serviced and working perfectly.
The solid 18K gold case is never refinished and has the correct untouched finished, complimenting the wonderful lug design the watch case is also water proof and has the original screw down case back, all hallmarks are intact and pristine like the rest of the watch.
The watch weighs in at an impressive 49 grams and wears extremely well at 35mm excluding the crown and being 11mm thick, it really has an amazing wrist presence. Finding period Nivada chronographs is difficult, they are really quite rare, finding one that is not only 18K gold with a valjoux 23 movement is nigh on impossible and add in the fact this watch is new old stock it makes it truly a unique find and a great investment opportunity.
