Croton is a popular and esteemed Swiss watchmaker with a rich horological heritage dating back to 1878. For over 134 years, the company has been producing innovative timepieces, impressive in design and craftsmanship, as well as value-priced and affordable.
The brand is named after the Italian region Croton, an area renowned for its physical beauty and strength. With precision Swiss craftsmanship and movements along with fashionable Italian-inspired designs distinguishing them from other brands, Croton gained worldwide popularity by the mid-1900s.
The brand is most famous for its Aquamatic timepiece, first introduced in the 1940s and one of the earliest automatic self-winding watches that was also water resistant. Print advertisements in newspapers and magazines for the watch exclaimed “The Croton Aquamatic winds by itself.” The timepiece is still in production today and remains one of the brand’s most popular watches.
In 1991, Croton became part of the Nationwide Time Group which took the brand to a higher level, embellishing Croton’s stellar image by producing premium quality timepieces at exceptional prices along with establishing a limited lifetime warranty on every watch movement.
Croton currently features both Swiss-made and precise Japanese movements in their assortment. In 2007, the brand sold over 1 million watches worldwide and remains today a leader in the watch industry.
