Other: Nivada Grenchen has become a household name within collector circles and rightfully so - They made some really cool watches in their day 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 dual-branded example was produced for the U.S. market. We took one look at the creamy dial and were immediately hooked on the texture, which adds another dimension to the piece. The solid stainless steel case with beveled lugs reminds us of early Spillman-cased chronographs and looks great on the wrist (especially out in the sun). The overall design is extremely versatile, allowing the watch to be dressed up or down. It's a unique and rare conversation piece and a lot of watch for only $700. AND it comes on a rare NOS JB Champion mesh bracelet!
