1960's CROTON Vintage Mens Retro Panda Dial "Paul Newman" Sea Diver Aviator Chronomaster Chronograph Watch - Stainless Steel

All Original & Beautiful Condition - Rare Dial - 1 Year Warranty

Today's offering showcases this very cool retro Croton Sea Diver Aviator Chronomaster chronograph with exotic "Paul Newman" panda dial. It's a great looking and slightly exotic example of a chronograph from a brand that has become increasingly collectable.

It is original down to the dial, hands, original crown and pushers and in beautiful condition. Powering it is its Landeron 248 based movement.

Here are some its features:

Rare and exotic "Paul Newman" panda dial with special subdials done in Rolex's Paul Newman style. It is a true Paul Newman dial - it was made by the Singer, the same company who manufactured the dials for Rolex.

Landeron 248 based engine - Landeron movements were used by Heuer, Baume et Mercier, Gallet and many others in their vintage chronographs

Revolving bezel with both 60 minute and 12 hour markings, suitable for using as a GMT or second time zone or for timing uses

Tachometer scale for measuring speeds

Rugged retro full size waterproof style case with screw back

Easy to read luminous hands

With their rugged cases which are full size without being bulky; classic and distinctive styling, and very special Paul Newman panda dial, it's easy to see why these chronographs continue to gain attention and collectability.

It is original with fine details, and the case shows only fairly light signs of polishing. The back retains all its wording. The hands are beautifully toned and complement the piece very nicely.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
