Other: This 1960s Croton Wrist Alarm Diver is incredibly rare and the epitome of cool - Just check out the glossy bright orange dial and unique black handset! You don't have to wait until Halloween to wear this watch - It's the perfect summer and fall companion that is sure to stand out from the crowd. And it's safe to say that you won't run into anyone else wearing one of these. We love how Croton decided to add a convenient quick-set date button to the base AS 1568 movement that powers this piece. With a functioning mechanical alarm and 12-hour bezel for tracking a second time zone, there is not much else you need in a vintage watch, especially at this price point.
