After launching the Chronomaster last year, Nivada Grenchen debuted another re-issue this week on Instagram.

For the latest chapter, the newly relaunched company will re-introduce a modern version of the 1960s Depthmaster 1000 collection, including the coveted Pac-Man model (shown).

Featuring a stainless steel cushion-shaped case with drilled lugs, the Depthmaster 1000 measures 39 mm in diameter, 47 mm lug-to-lug, and 13 mm thick and it’s faithful to the past — for those that prefer smaller watches — just as with the Chronomaster.

The Depthmaster 1000 will be available to pre-order in mid-February for $1,000 with deliveries beginning June 2021. There will be three dial variations at launch, including the re-issue of the Nivada Grenchen Depthmaster Pac-Man. Both modern lume and aged lume will be an option.

This is a professional dive watch and the bezel is made for diving with engraved markings including bright red graduations for the first 15-minutes. The slightly chambered crystal is sapphire, the crown and caseback are screwed-down, and there’s an automatic helium escape valve for saturation diving. Water-resistance is rated to 1,000 meters.

With an eclectic mix of hand designs and Pac-Man-shaped hour markers, of the three dial designs, the Pac-Man is sure to be the hottest.

The original Depthmaster 1000s came with an ETA 2472 movement, whereas the modern version will come with a Swiss-made automatic Sellita SW-200. You’ll be able to choose between 4-5 straps and bracelets (20 mm interlug width).

Like with the Chronomaster, Nivada is delivering another faithful recreation of one of its most popular past timepieces.
