HISTORY & NOTES

An extremely rare and fine example of a Croton 'Mariner' Navy Surgeon's dress watch. This one has been very well cared for though there is some dial patina, CROTON and MARITIMER having faded due to some tropicalisation.

Examine the HD photos carefully; they form the majority of this much sought after vintage Swiss watch's description.

Please note that I never guarantee that a watch is 100% waterproof!

Your watch will be carefully wrapped (see my Feedback and bid with confidence!) and shipped via Colissimo Insured & Signed For.
