Croton - Paul du Pree Nivada Grenchen - c.1955

$642.00 USD

A Charming 1950s Croton - Paul du Pree Nivada Grenchen Watch with an Attractive Tropical dial, Paired with an Ostrich Leather Strap

Established in 1878, the Croton Watch Co., Inc. made each watchmaker work hard to master the art of making timepieces. Croton Watch was a humble manufacturer who believed that precision, quality, style and value need to be all present to create the horological wonders of the century.

What’s On Offer 

This is a charming watch from Croton with a charismatic tropicalised dial. At 32mm, this is a fairly slight watch proportionally but what it lacks in size it surely makes up for in charm! The dial is beautifully furnished with applied arrowhead hour markers, Arabic numerals and stylish Dauphine hands. There is a sub-second dial at 6 o'clock. The stainless steel case is in good condition with only the general signs of wear you would expect from a pre-owned watch produced in the 1950s. We have paired the watch with a mid-blue ostrich leather strap which brings out the detail of the dial nicely - this can be changed should you wish. 

If you can shed any light on the Paul Du Pree reference on the dial I would really appreciate it as I simply cannot find any background to that but am surmising it is the name of a designer or collaboration.
