Join Tim Temple on Tuesday, 07/31/18, at 9pm EST as he brings you an incredible deal from Croton. In this episode, Talk About Watches has secured a limited quantity of SOLID .925 silver case chronographs that also include a ceramic bezel (with tachymeter scale) as well as a genuine stingray exotic strap. What makes this a really incredible deal is that it is a "buy more, save more" opportunity. When you buy any two of these Croton beauties you save more (any colors, your choice). AND, if that were not enough, each watch also includes a Croton toolkit as well! All of this with free shipping! If you can't make the live show, a replay will be posted here as soon as we are able.
One of the ongoing hits for Croton has been the Super C series, as many of you know. But you’ve not seen it like this! The 48mm case and bracelet are crafted of 316L steel. silicon insets have been added to the signature bracelet. Beneath the domed sphereulite cystal is a dial of warm whites and silvers with splashes of eye catching fire engine red, displaying the chronograph, day, date, and seconds complications, all driven by a Swiss ISA 8171 quartz movement. Additionally, it is very important to notice that each purchase includes the Croton toolkit as well!
Both watch fans and bargain hunters are going to love this one! This Croton is from the Imperial series. 316L stainless steel 42mm x 13mm case houses a skeletonized automatic movement showcased via both semi-skeletonized dial with luminous hands and roman numeral hour markers beneath a scratch resistant mineral crystal, as well as exhibition back. Presented on 18 mm leather strap with tang clasp, the finished work is tested to 3 ATM water resistance. MSRP is 395.00, but you choose between stainless or rose finish via TAW for just 79.99. With a single watch purchase, you also get a watch winder included! And you can choose two for just 150.00! AND if you choose two, you will still get the watch winders (2) PLUS you will get the sought after watch tool kit (49.95 value) INCLUDED AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE; that’s a combined MSRP 839.95 for just 150.00! All choices have shipping included.

We’ve talked for years on our shows how tool kits are one of the most practical additions to any watch collections. Also how they can literally pay for themselves, which is true. Recently we saw a discussion thread started by someone weary of paying 10 dollars per sizing, and if you went for the typical 12 piece kit in the 60 dollar (plus shipping) range you can recoup that in just six or seven sizings, not to mention some other stuff you can do. Smart, right? Ok, check this out. The kit we’ve negotiated has way more than a typical 12 piece. It may have some wear on the box itself (so what) but the tools are pristine. 3 jewelers screwdrivers. Bracelet block. Case blade. Additional portable bracelet block. Additional tool with numerous interchangeable strap changing forks and screwdriver heads. Needle nose. Jeweler’s loupe. Tool to loosen or tighten screw-in backs. dual head mallet. All in a custom foam interior carrying case. Not at 60.00. Not at half of that. ONLY 19.95, SHIPPING INCLUDED! Literally recoup this in the two sizings you do the first day you get it. It’s not a question of if you get this, only if you reserve what you need before they’re gone.
Between the black dial and the black Silicon strap you have the perfect backdrop for these numbers to pop right out at you. What a perfect idea to use a satin finished bezel against a high polished case and then put high polished numbers on the bezel with a high polished edge which makes it easy to rotate. The high polish touches pick up the light from everywhere including the high polished edges of the hands which are luminous. The Red C on the second hand adds that special touch all its own, contrasting against the black dial that showcases the expanded quickset date window. All of this is working with a SII VJ45B quartz movement protected by a Sphereulite crystal. Presented on a soft yet strong 9” silicon strap with a buckle closure.
Many folks have asked us to bring back this Croton Imperial automatic (plus watch winder) deal. Thanks to "The Merm", we are able to do so for this long Memorial Day weekend! Nothing has changed. The watches and the winder that you get with each watch purchase are the same...as is the pricing. If you missed out the first time or were not with Talk About Watches when it initially went out, then this weekend is your opportunity to get a second change at getting it into your collect (if you act quickly!).
Welcome to the live streaming page for the current episode of Talk About Watches Live. On Friday, 05/18/18 (at 10pm EST), Tim Temple will be presenting a number of timepieces from both Sturmanskie and Croton. Tim's special guest will be Craig Hester. Please note that the extremely discounted prices will not be made available until just before the show begins. We do hope that you will join us live for the show on the Talk About Watches Facebook page (link below). However, if you cannot make it, a replay of the show will be made available here as quickly as we are able to process it.
This “soft” rectangle 47mm x 32mm x 10mm case is done in 316L steel and contains a Swiss quartz movement with quickset date. It’s a sleek gorgeous look on the wrist. Much of this build, such as 24mm diameter 8” bracelet and bezel is crafted from solid white ceramic. This lightweight hypoallergenic material is nearly impossible to scratch outside of diamond and stays color perfect. The dial features large easy to read arabic numbers and is protected by genuine sapphire crystal! The finished watch is tested to 3 ATM water resistance.
We’ve just been contacted by Croton with an exiting offer for a single collector. This tourbillon was built to honor their 140th anniversary and is visually spectacular both front and back. It’s important that we emphasize that this is the only one not in a private collection, as the collection otherwise sold out during an event coinciding with the anniversary. We know from speaking directly to the CEO of Croton that this piece was individually hand finished, and if you consider the exceptional detail enjoyed both obverse and reverse you realize to what extent.
