FS: 1960s Croton Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver « CASD » strai *LINK* *PIC*

Follow the link below for more watches, we have a lot of new additions these days.


The recent release of the book “Chronomaster Only”, by Grégoire Rossier and Anthony Marquié, has highlighted a series of underrated sport watches produced in the late 60s by Nivada, under the brand Nivada Grenchen or Croton for the American market: the Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver.

These watches stand out by a superb design, great movements and excellent construction and finish.

This very cool example makes no exception. Featuring a reverse panda dark gray dial (originally black), a glossy black and silver rotating bezel and a thick dome plexi, it is the ultimate sport chronograph that any watch enthusiast should have in its collection.
