The Nivachron is a titanium-based non-magnetic alloy produced in collaboration with The Swatch Group and Audemars Piguet. The alloy was developed with the aim of optimizing the resistance of watch movements to magnetic fields. With its complex composition of the alloy made of a titanium base The Nivachron balance spring offers a number of advantages.
It allows a considerable reduction in the influence of the residual effect of a magnetic field on the running of a watch, is very effective against temperature variations experienced, it offers excellent shock resistance. Ultimately, all of these advantages result in a significant improvement in chronometric performance.
The Nivachron balance spring was introduced in 2018 in the limited edition Swatch Flymagic.
