NOTES: Nivada Grenchen is a Swiss watch company founded in 1879 in the town of Grenchen, Switzerland. Grenchen is the same town where several watch manufacturers were also established, including Breitling SA, ETA SA, Fortis, Eterna SA and Titoni Ltd. Very little information is available on these ultra-rare timepieces, which also makes them highly collectible.
