Read before bidding! Do not bid if you expect to buy a watch with the accuracy of a modern quartz movement. You should note that this is a collectors' type watch that is about 75 years old and has most probably been to war and back!
As some of you will know, I am a fan of Croton watches. These were very popular in the USA from around Pearl Harbour time until after the Korean War. This was because they were the most waterproof watches of their era. Croton was very closely "related" to Nivada (Grenchen) and its main object post 1940 was to sell watches to the newly founded military purchase organisation, The Army & Airforce Exchange Services (AAFES),formerly the PX and its US Navy equivalent. They were also popular with US Coast Guard (Maritime Enforcement [ME] ) personnel during the WW2 period.
This wonderfully patinated dial Croton Buccaneer is another from my diminishing collection and is in above average condition. Like its first cousin the Vindicator, it has a sealed or "clam shell" case system created by Schmitz Frères & Co. SA. The bezel and lugs section are fitted on top of the FEF movement [[Google 'FEF 210 ranfft' for more information]] housed in the one piece case. This is locked in place by four stainless steel locking screws with the glass and waterproof seal acting as a cap. The untouched well patinated dial without crown measures 30.28mms and the military type strap will fit a wrist to 22.00cms. However I would not guarantee that the case is 100% waterproof like any modern Rolex! The serial number would indicate it to have been manufactured Q1 1944.
As always I urge you to examine the High Definition photos carefully as they form an important part of this rare WW2 era watch's description.
Bid with confidence (see my Feedback!) as you can be assured that the watch will be well wrapped and then shipped to you by Colissimo International Insured & Signed For.
