    Something unexpected in my Croton purchase!

    Hello all,
    I have purchased a few nicer quality Croton's in the past couple of weeks, got a couple in the mail today, and one came with a pleasant surprise! It came with a Croton box, but what is more interesting, is it came with an original felt oversleeve! It is definitely the first in my growing collection, and now I will have to seek more of these out!

    Now that is interesting. I have never seen one of these. I always thought that watches, when sold in the old days, just came in slim boxes.....

    Fair enough, but the over sleeve technically doesn't belong with either that I purchased......

    Cheers! Nice, even if not strictly correct - how would any of us know, anyway?

    For some reason, vintage Croton's have suddenly become more popilar. A year ago, I could buy almost any model for a reasonably low cost. And now, all of a sudden, I am fighting people on auctions. Some sellers have even gone as far as putting astronomical prices for common models. I hope I make it to 150 different!....lol

    Yep, that's what happens. Next, I daresay that Clinton watches will bounce up in price. Although I doubt that they'll get to $26 000 as per a recent thread here!

    I collect mostly Bulova watches but it seems to me that all vintage watches have been going up in price substantially in the last few years. The interest in them must be growing.

    Very true, but the vintage Croton community is rather small. I know of only a handful of true collectors, so must be someone has caught on to something other than myself...lol
