Adina Nurses Fob Watch - Gold Plate White Face (24hr)
The NK36 is a good size at 36mm, lightweight, affordable and as with all Adina watches is completely assembled by hand in Australia by a qualified watchmaker. For 44 years this reliable Adina nurse watch has been the go to watch for countless nurses. It is a watch that encapsulates “human history”, celebrating many of life’s highs and comforting during the lows.
The Adina nurse watch NK36 G1FF especially designed for the hard working, Australian nurse, this nurse watch exudes a stylish yet conservative demeanour. It has been in our collection for 44 years having been first released in 1975. Our founder Bob had been at the hospital to witness the birth of his daughter and noticed (of course) that all the nurses wore a fob watch. Here was an opportunity to create something new.
There was no need to attempt to re-create the wheel. The nurses fob watch had been around for decades. It is fundamentally designed according to nurses’ needing to wear a watch to accurately document the time on a patient’s chart and take a patient’s pulse. The unique characteristic is the watch being needed to be worn on the uniform, not strapped to the wrist. See here an excerpt from NHS (UK) dress code:
“Wrist watches must not be worn but securely pinned (similar to a fob watch) to the uniform to prevent any hazard to patients.”
With the watch needing to be worn on the uniform, and hanging from a pinned short chain, we designed an ‘upside down’ dial with clear numerals and hands, in order to make it easy to be read in the day or at night in low light.
It seemed obvious to Bob to initially use the bright glowing ‘Tritium’ (these days we use ‘Superluminova’) on the hands and numbers for night visibility. He made the cases water resistant, not so the nurse could go swimming in it! But to ensure if the watch was left on her uniform after a long, tough shift and it went through the wash, it would survive.
Recent developments have seen us be the first to incorporate a small piece of bracelet to replace the chain. This is more durable and looks fantastic! We have even started using sapphire glasses for unparalleled scratch resistance, and the cases for more durability are constructed from robust nickel free, marine grade stainless steel, which houses the Swiss made reliable Ronda 715 movement.
This Adina watch has been fitted with a stainless steel name plate, perfect for engraving the owners name. Even though this is a nurse watch keeping the water out is still a top priority and doing that is an o-ring crown giving solid water protection.
The Adina nurse’s fob watch today, available in two sizes 24mm and 32mm, still holds pride of place in our collection, being the longest continually run model in the range, and having found its way on to countless thousands of our frontline nurses. The Adina nurse watch NK36 G1FF is also available with a roman dial and in rose gold or stainless steel finishes. As with all Adina watches this watch has been completely assembled by hand in Brisbane, Australia.
Adina, Australian watchmaking at its finest.
