Other: Nivada Grenchen has become a household name within collector circles and rightfully so - They made some really cool watches and this rare Aquamatic is no exception. To avoid trademark conflicts, Nivada Grenchen watches were often distributed in the United States under the Croton brand name. This particular dual-branded example was produced in the 1960s for the U.S. market. We took one look at the creamy "eggshell" dial with stick markers and immediately fell in love. The stainless steel Bauhaus-style case with beveled lugs reminds us of early Spillman chronographs and looks great on the wrist (especially out in the sun). The overall minimal design aesthetic is extremely versatile, allowing the watch to be dressed up or down.
