Item No. 5953
Today's offering showcases this very cool retro Croton Sea Diver Aviator Chronomaster chronograph with exotic "Paul Newman" panda dial. It's a great looking and slightly exotic example of a chronograph from a brand that has become increasingly collectable.
It is original down to the dial, hands, original crown and pushers and in beautiful condition. Powering it is its Landeron 248 based movement.
Here are some its features:
With their rugged cases which are full size without being bulky; classic and distinctive styling, and very special Paul Newman panda dial, it's easy to see why these chronographs continue to gain attention and collectability.
It is original with fine details, and the case shows only fairly light signs of polishing. The back retains all its wording. The hands are beautifully toned and complement the piece very nicely.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather 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.
