FS: Croton Nivada Chronomaster Aviator Seadiver - Valjoux 23

Hi everyone,

Here's up for sale this nice Chronomaster, first execution with the glorious Valjoux 23.

As you can see the watch is in pretty good shape. The hands have been relumed and few minor scratches on the case can be seen: no ding whatsoever.
No service history but the watch works fine, keeping accurate time and winding smoothly. The chronograph functions are ok except the reset that would need a quick fix: it goes back to 2 or 3 seconds before 12 o'clock from time to time, but nothing serious.
The case back has been engraved from its first owner, a US Navy soldier. I was able to track a part of his history down, which is pretty cool if you ask me: a past of a real toolwatch, obviously.

Price: 1700€ net to me. Bankwire only.
Many references available on the french forums. The watch is based in Paris.


Thanks Chronotrader for the space!
