    Vintage Croton Chronomaster

    Hi!
    Just recently acquired a Croton Chronomaster Aviator Sea.
    The watch is in somewhat of a rough state and is missing both bezel and one of the pushers.

    I have been hearing it's almost impossible to find a new bezel. But hey it's only impossible if you don't try.

    As a second hand option, is it possible to find another suiting bezel? Must be one that's close enough until i find the real deal, right?
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Possibility is always alive :)
    Finding incorrect but suiting bezel is an option too
    Dial is in a very good condition, hands nicely patinated, would be nice too see it cleaned up and complete :)
    Chaos is my focus

    You don't happen to know what to look for in my search for a incorrect bezel?
    I think im gonna have to find a donorwatch for the correct one.
    A suiting one just have to come up first :D

    I sadly do not :| What You need is the ability to try them on before buying so remote purchases are not an option I suppose

    One caution:

    Unfortunately, not all the cases/bezels are the same. They vary a bit in size over movement and age. So it isn't sufficient just to find a chronomaster bezel, you need to find the right one - even though the damn things look identical.

    What movement has yours? Looks late, so a Landeron 248 or Valjoux 7733?

    I have a Valjoux 23 and Venus 210 version.

    Haha of course they differ :D
    Another obstacle. Nice.

    It's a Landeron 248 in this one. I'll have to measure when i get it :)
