    Very Nice Croton Aquamatic Find

    While cruzin the bay the other day I happened to spot this smokin Croton
    on a very reasonable buy it now so I did and wow it is nice.
    It's a bit smaller than I usually like at 32mm w/o crown but it sits nice on the wrist.
    Croton marked all stainless case w/screw back. Movement is the ever famous croton copper colored ETA 2451 and is keeping great time.
    I have had several complements in just one day of wear.
    The contrast is just perfect.
    Don't know the year but guessing early 60's

    Dirtvictim--I got one that's identical, except it says "Ice Cut" where Croton is located. Otherwise it's identical. I'll send a picture later. They are nice!!

    dirtvictim--here it is. It really looks similar to yours except mine has "Ice Cut" instead of Croton. Mine tells great time but the self wind does'nt seem to be working 100%. One of my favorite vintages. Good luck with yours!!

    That is way cool. Wonder what the ice cut is all about.
