Movement: ETA cal. 2472 self-winding automatic movement (17 jewels) with date and center sweeping-seconds hand; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Beautiful original white "SWISS" only dial with cool art-deco numerals at 6 and 12 o'clock; date display at 3 o'clock with red numerals; original handset; unpolished stainless steel case with screw-down back and domed acrylic crystal; reliable Swiss ETA automatic movement (serviced); awesome vintage Speidel bracelet

Condition: Excellent original condition overall with honest signs of wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is unpolished with sharp bevels and the original finishes throughout; crisp screw-down caseback remains clearly legible; very attractive original white dial has aged to a light eggshell color with all lume plots in tact and matching; very nice original hands with all luminous material in tact; new domed acrylic crystal

Other: Croton has become a household name within collector circles and rightfully so - They made some really cool watches and this affordable Aquamatic Date with gorgeous white dial is no exception. We love the unique art-deco numerals at 6 and 12 o'clock and the pop of red color from the date disc. The rare vintage Speidel bracelet makes the watch wear larger than its stated size. The overall minimal design aesthetic is extremely versatile, allowing the watch to be dressed up or down. As an added bonus, our watchmaker just completely overhauled the Swiss ETA 2472 automatic movement.
