On offer's a panda Croton Chronomaster powered by a Valjoux 92 that comes with outer and inner boxes and instruction manual.
The dial is fantastic with full+puffy lume plots. The hands show signs of wear but also have their full lume (slightly darker than the dial, but clearly they match).
The case has signs of moderate wear but clearly hasn't been polished. Crown's unsigned, bezel rotates.
The Valjoux 92 is rust-free and seems currently to be working well when the chronograph's engaged. When the chronograph is stopped+reset (has gone to zero each time I've tried it), the watch stops. So, obviously, the watch will need a service to be a regular wearer.
Still: it's in excellent shape, and the white-dialed versions of these are significantly less common, plus you're getting a classic column-wheel movement.
Asking $2700. Watch+I are in Indiana/USA. Happy to provide more pictures/details/references, and to work out shipping/payment method with buyer. Thanks for looking, and thanks to Jeff for the space.
