FS: Croton Chronomaster Aviator Sea Dive with BoR and dive band

You'll see many of the common black-dial versions of this watch before you see another one of these light dial versions. This is a 1960s Croton Chronomaster Aviator Sea Diver featuring the Landeron 248 movement. Bi-directional bezel turns freely. Dial is nearly perfect, just the hands show light aging and the bezel has light marks.

Comes on a New Old Stock Beads of Rice bracelet from the same period with a retail value of $495 and with another 19mm tropic type dive band that retails for $59.99. When you buy a vintage watch from Squinky, you also get great deals on additional straps bought at the same time. Just message us with your choices of Half Price bands to be sent with the watch with no additional shipping fee.
