Croton Silver or Gold Minute Hand Japanese Quartz Watch – $59.49 w/ 15WTCH512
Code 15WTCH512 gets you 15% off watches plus free shipping. 15OFFMAY512 is good for $15 off orders over $50, SAVE20MAY9 gets you 20% off, but those lack free shipping ($6.99), and thus, aren’t the best deal.
Croton ain’t Cartier. Hell, they aren’t Citizen. But these two use Japanese quartz movements (the brand as a whole has used automatics from time to time) and they’re awfully classy looking at first glance.
But where’s the hour hand? You thought reading a blackout watch wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. These will take some getting used to. As you’ve already figured out, the hour hand is on the top 24-hour subdial.
Subtle stripes to the dial and very slightly raised subdial cutouts are both nice touches. The texture to the crown and the lizard-like embossing on the leather band (as opposed to the usual croc look) are also pluses.
But would you wear it if you were in the market for an ultra cheap dress watch? Leave your take below.
