FS: Croton Nivada Grenchen Aviator Sea Diver Chronograph $1750


This is the rare sought-after Croton Nivada Grenchen Sea Diver chronograph, perhaps the most sought-after implementation of the Valjoux 92. This is one of the best examples you will find-- the case, dial, hands, and movement are all in excellent condition for the age of the watch and original. The quintessential pilots chronograph, the feel and quality of the watch is clear once you hold it and put you on your wrist. Croton was near their peak as a brand when they introduced this watch and the quality they invested in this watch is evident. These are hard to come-by in this condition. We paired it with a beautiful very lightly used Hirsch Knight watch strap and Hadley Roma deployant buckle.

We performed comprehensive testing and performance measurement of this watch. It is running very well. A detailed performance report can be provided to prospective buyers upon request.

Calibre: Valjoux 92, Shock Resist
Case Material: Stainless Steel

Strap: Hirsch Knight strap worn 5-10 times, long. Hadley Roma deployant buckle
