    Hi WuS, Up for trade is my 43mm Sub Homage by Croton. It is approximately 4 years old and features a black dial with gold indices, gold plated bezel and blue/gold insert! Powered by an excellent DG2813 (it says Japan on the case but I'm pretty sure it's a DG) which runs with the slightest...

    I'm JD, long time listener, first time caller. So I picked up a vintage croton aqua-matic with a bumper automatic on ebay the other day. I probably paid too much, but that teaches us not to ebay when you drink. So this is what I know and I'm having trouble finding more info on the movement and...

    Hello all. My name is Raymond. I've been into watches for a while, especially vintage mechanicals. I'm finally in a position where I have enough disposable income to indulge a bit, so I picked up two watches from everyone's favorite crack dealer (eBay... I really can't stop!) The first is a...

    If you read my part 1 thread then you know why I split my post into two parts. I didn't want a ton of pictures clogging up one thread. Now for the watches. These are the other two watches I bought recently. A very nice Croton Equator and a squarish Olma. I've wanted one of those linen dialed...

    So i got this Croton CA301184SSYL from some guy on bladeforums for $85. At first i was happy with how it looked (never received yet) but after looking at reviews of other croton watches and the company itself i began to worry about the quality of this watch.

    The Croton CA301157BKSL appears much more expensive than it is. It has many nice features that you don't normally find at this price point. The basic style is Sub Homage, but while the watch hands are spot-on, the face markers are a bit different from the standard Submariner. The hours markers...
