GLOSSY~60s CROTON CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA DIVER

GLOSSY~60s CROTON CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA DIVER

Regular price $0.69 Sale

IT IS MY PLEASURE TO OFFER UP FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION THIS REALLY NICE 60s CROTON CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA DIVER IN FANTASTIC CONDITION. SIGNED 3X

 

  • CASE: HEFTY SOLID STEEL CASE IN VERY GOOD UNPOLISHED CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A NICE 38mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING CROWN BY 46.5mm LUG TO LUG. I LOVE THESE CASD CASES WHICH HAVE THOSE SUPER COOL BEVELED EDGES. THIS ONE IS IN HONEST UNPOLISHED CONDITION MAINTAINING ALL ITS SHARP LINES. THERE ARE MINOR HAIRLINES THROUGHOUT AND SOME SMALL DINGS ON THE LUGS, BUT AS CAN BE SEEN, THIS ONE LOOKS PRETTY GOOD. THE ROTATING MILITARY STYLE DUAL SCALE BEZEL IS IN REALLY CLEAN SHAPE WITH ONLY SOME MILD SCRATCHES SEEN BUT NO SIGNS OF WEAR OR FADE.

 

  • DIAL: POSSIBLY MY FAVORITE VARIANT OF ALL THE NIVADA/CROTON CASD VARIANTS. CHECK OUT THAT DEEP INKY GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH THOSE SUNKEN SUBDIALS. SO MONOCHROMATIC WITH THAT VIVID WHITE PRINT AND THOSE MINTY STICK WHITE HANDS. YOU DO GET THAT RICH POP OF BLOOD RED ON THE MINUTE TOTALIZER AND THE SWEEP HAND. THIS IS A REALLY WELL PRESERVED DIAL. EVEN THE TRITIUM LUME IS IN SUPER CLEAN SHAPE ONLY SHOWING THE FAINTEST HINT OF CUSTARD PATINA.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS SLEEK DIVE CHRONO IS POWERED BY A SWISS 17J LANDERON 248.  ALL FUNCTIONS WORK PERFECTLY AND WATCH HAS BEEN KEEPING EXCELLENT TIME. SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN BUT MY WATCHMAKER DID PERFORM SOME MINOR ADJUSTMENTS TO MAKE THE CHRONO EXTRA SNAPPY.

 

  • THIS CROTON IS MOUNTED ON A RUE WATCHES MINIMALIST BROWN STRAP WHICH LOOKS REALLY BADASS ON THIS DIVER. THE NIVADA AND CROTON CHRONOMASTER AVIATOR SEA DIVERS HAVE TAKEN ON A SOMEWHAT LEGENDARY STATUS IN THE LAST FEW YEARS AND HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY MORE VALUABLE, SCARCE, AND COLLECTIBLE. THIS HAPPENS TO BE MY PREFERRED VARIANT OF THE LINE. I JUST LOVE THE CONTRAST WITH THOSE WHITE HANDS AGAINST THAT INKY DIAL. THIS IS SUCH A PERFECT ALL-ROUNDER VINTAGE WHICH CAN EASILY BE A DRESS DIVER OR A WEEKEND WARRIOR. THIS ONE IS DUE TO GO UP IN VALUE, SO JUMP ON IT!!
