    Question Opinions on Nivrel

    I recently saw a Nivrel watch that caught my interest. I know next to nothing about this German brand. Anyone have experiences with or information about Nivrel to share?

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Be careful-- there are two Nivrel watch companies:
    >the German Nivrel makes high quality german watches
    >the Italian Nivrel makes goofy fashion watches, including those transparent watches with acrylic cases and bracelets that were all the rage in Italy and southern Europe last year.
    I have this German Nivrel-- beautiful fit and finish:

    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Thanks for the heads up -- I did not know about the Italian brand. I was looking at the German one.

    Re: Opinions on Nivrel

    Are you talking about Nivrel in general ? Is there a special model you are looking at. Imho Nivrel offers a large range of watches. The minute repeaters are state of the art, the Tourbillon Diver too (but who needs a tourbillon watch when diving).
    The diver´s watches range is nothing more than average, not superior to MarcelloC, Archimede. I´d rate the diver´s watches their entry-level.

    Mike, I was thinking of the Nivrel Grande Guilloche -- probably considered an entry level Nivrel, but I think I might like it as a dress watch (and I have been wanting to try a German watch).

    unless you have owned the nivrel deepsea 1000m, how can you say its a lesser quality watch than a marcello or achimede? I have that nivrel. A flawless watch. It weighs in the same as the stowa pro diver, very accurate and a all around quality piece. not a entry level watch. I collect mainly divers and do have experience with these pieces you mention.

    I didn't say that. Please read carefully. I stated: ....not superior to MarcelloC, Archimede which means same (and average) quality at an entry level.
