Vintage 1940's WWII era Military "Waterproof" Watch by Croton Exquisite Dial
An affordable tropical dial Military watch by Croton. It's a decent timekeeper, we just serviced it March 2018. The movement is very well done - not so much in finishing but well executed for utility use - it's a manual wind. The case is made of base metal, significant brassing is noted all around as seen in the pictures. One piece of good news, is that the brassing is least on the bezel and front - so you don't notice it much when on the wrist. The caseback is stainless steel. This is a very uncommon model for Croton and uncommon original dial that has darkened with age. Tropical dials like this have been fetching quite a bit just for the look. Please note the hands are original and the min. hand is missing most of its lume material. The watch comes with its original dust cover which is often missing and is presented on a high quality grey NATO strap.
