IN 1940
NIVADA GETCHEN

CREATED THE

FOR THE
HIGHER QUAILITY DEMANDING
U.S. MARKET

THE WATCHES NIVADA GRENTCHEN INTRODUCED
WERE MORE THAN PERFECT
THEY INCLUDED

PERHAPS
THE FINEST CASE DEIGN
SINCE THE WYLER
BACK IN THE 1930’S

wpeF8.jpg (2925 bytes)

A SEALED STYLE CASE DESIGN
THAT WAS “WATERPROOF”
COMPOSED OF STAINLESS STEEL
WITH TWO PART STEM

AND 4 SCREWS
THAT PULLED THE
CASE AND BEZEL
SANDWITCHING
A SEAL & HAT CRYSTAL
BETWEEEN THE
BEZEL AND CASE

SHOW-CROTON-AQUA-CASE.jpg (82194 bytes)

A SINGLE STEEL “POT” CASE WITH LONG STEM TUBE
A MOVEMENT W/DIAL & FEMALE HALF STEM FIT INTO CASE
A SEAL WAS PLACED ON THE CASE LEDGE
A “HAT” LOOKING CRYSTAL WAS PLACED OVER SEAL
A STEEL BEZELW/LUGS WAS PLACED OVER THE TOP
UNDER EACH LUG A HEADLESS SCREW WAS TURNED IN UNTIL THE CASE WAS PUSHED INTO THE BEZEL WITH A SANNDWHICH EFFECT COMPRESSING THE CONPONENTS AND SEALING THE CASE?
A CROWN WITH DOUBLE SEAL AND THE MALE HALF OF THE STEM

WWII 1944 PACIFIC COMMAND NIVADA GRETCHEN CROTON VINDICATOR AQUAMEDICO

IF IT WERE NOT FOR A WORLD WIDE WAR
WOULD NIVADA
— THROUGH THEIR CROTON BRAND
HAVE SOLD OVER A MILLION WATCHES
IN THE US THEIR FIRST TWO YEARS??
I DOUBT IT!

CROTON-MILITARY.jpg (89082 bytes)
ABOVE ADD HAS A WWII SUB SECONDS
AND A WWII SWEEP SEC MODEL
 

THE FACT IS  THE NEW CROTON CASE SYSTEM
–WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT SEALING SYSTEM EVEN BY TODAYS STANDARDS–
ALONG WITH MILITARY ADS
SUCH AS THE ONE ABOVE
CROTON CREATED A HUGE DEMAND
FIRST FROM
PROFESSIONALS AND WORKERS
AND THEN FROM
SOLDIERS WHO INVESTED IN SEVERAL MODELA
INCLUDING THE TWO MOST FAMOUS

THE
CROTON VINDICATOR
AND
CROTON VINDICATOR AQUAMEDICO

THOUGH THE MOST FAMOUS CROTON MAY BE THE 1950’S AQUAMATIC WITH A 360 DEGREE ROTOR, A SIMILAR CASED AUTOMATIC BUMPER CROTON WATCH WOULD BE ADVERTISED IN THE 1940’S.  IT WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST AQUAMATIC [AUTOMATIC] WITH A 180 DEGREE BACK/FORTH BUMPER MOVEMENT.  IT WOULD BE A DECADE MORE BEFORE A 360 DEGREE ROTOR AUTOMATIC AQUAMATIC WOULD ALLOW FOR A SOLID AUTOMATIC WATCH. THUS
WHILE THE BUMPER WAS AN AUTOMATIC, AND WAS UTILIZED BY ALMOST ALL COMPANIES EXCEPT ROLEX PRIOR TO 1950,
  IT DID NOT AND CANNOT,  WITH STAND LONG TERM USE .. WHICH MEANS IT IS COLLECTIBLE– BUT YOU SHOULD NOT WEAR IT LONG TERM. ,

SO, WHILE WE ARE TALKING 1940’S, AND THIS OFFER IS FOR ONE OF THE VERY FIRST “CROTON” OFFERS EVER, CROTON DECIDED TO FOCUS ON THE CASE, THE DESIGN, THE MODEL NAMES AND THE WAR…...
