1960s Vintage Nivada Manual Wind "Indigo Blue"

Nivida "Indigo Blue"
Circa 1960s

There's some mystery about the color blue when it comes to watches. To some it's a sporty hue -  a piece of the sky taken and placed in the space of the dial, a signal to adventure and a masculine choice in fashion. 

To some others it's a quiet protest against the institution. Hidden under the sleeve is a loud off-color that wouldn't be tolerated by the harsh emotionless corporates and their suits.

This charming Nivada could be the perfect undersleeve moray eel, ready to surprise should anyone be daring enough to peek.

The hour batons and the hands stand blocky and stark against the grainy blue dial, silver printed words marking the spaces on the dial outlined by a minute track.

This, complemented by the matching blue leather strap, gives an ideal reason to stretch out a little to expose the lurking rebellion amidst the routine humdrum of the work day.
