Nivada x Revolution & The Rake Depthmaster "No Barracuda"
$ 990 Sold Out
Nivada Grenchen is a brand with a long and proud history in the realm of dive watches — and the Depthmaster is one of the brand’s most recognizable designs. One of the most coveted variants of this model is the so-called ‘Pac-Man’, named for the ultra stylized font on the dial, which means the numbers resemble pixelated ghosts as much as they do numerals.
But we didn’t just want to look to the past; we also wanted to add our own spin on things. So we took the Depthmaster and made it blacker, thanks to a tough DLC coating. Then we added on the coolest — and most comfortable — beads of rice bracelet we could find, and loaded the whole thing up with lume. The colour of the luminous material is inspired by the creamy head on a perfectly poured pint of Guinness — something that took ample field research to perfect. The only thing left was to give this beast a name. Inspired by a story that the fearsome barracuda is attracted to shiny objects, we decided to name this perfectly matte Depthmaster the ‘No Barracuda’, and made it official with a custom caseback engraving.

Full disclosure, historically, the Depthmaster has never been a black watch, which makes this version even cooler. The 39mm steel case has a tough black DLC treatment to equal the 1000m water resistance.
Not only are the hands and dial markings generously filled with luminous material, but the bezel is too. Sure, it makes for good legibility at depth, but more importantly, it makes for a good impression on the wrist.
Inspired by a coveted collector's piece, the dial markings feature highly stylized numerals at the cardinal points, which bear a strong resemblance to the iconic arcade game.
Beads of Rice, Very Nice
This limited edition comes with not one, but two straps. A beads of rice style bracelet, black like the case, is the perfect fit. The warm brown leather strap offers some tonal and textural contrast.
