From our ClockSavant Survivor line, Fully Serviced by ClockSavant, this is a vintage watch restored for its importance or significance and not profitability. We chose this vintage watch because its style and dial are a near-perfect representation of 1960's era tuxedo style textured dial, classic sword hands, and simple design as well as its robust 17 jewel A. Schild Swiss movement. We paired it with a Hirsch Duke strap that we believe brings-out the beautiful aged textured dial and overall original design intent of the watch. Croton made excellent watches during this era.
