Item No. 5981

Today's offering showcases this elegant and refined mens Croton in pleasing all-original condition.

Made specifically for the U.S. market, it's luxurious dial is original Croton factory set with thirty-six diamonds. In true dress watch style it only has two hands.

It is fully original down to the dial, hands, and even the winding crown. Powering it is its original handwound Croton movement.

Its untouched dial is mint. Its monococque - or one-piece - case, which achieved high water resistance ratings by not having a separate case back, is in excellent condition.

Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement, which is running very true.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

Founded in 1878, the Swiss firm of Croton Watch Company has been family-operated since its inception. During vintage times they sold watches in the U.S. market under the brands of Croton, Nivada Grenchen, and at times both.
