Thread: Can anyone tell me anything about this watch?

  1. #1

    Can anyone tell me anything about this watch?

    So I came across this watch recently and really liked the aesthetics of it. I didn't buy it as I was unfamiliar with the brand and the price was relatively high. I've been trying to do some research but can't find much.
    I know it is from a company that was based in upstate NY and I believe it has a valjoux movement.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Personally haven't heard of and don't know anything about the company...but looks just like the old Croton / Nivada Grenchen Aviator Sea Divers. All these probably came from the same production facility.

    Love the broad arrow hands on these.

    Afraid I've no answer to the question; but, It certainly has character. Though, it seems a little confused: Is it an 'Aviator' or a 'Diver' ?

    I think you're right.

    I did a bit more digging. Looks like Rudolph's was a jewelery store, Rudolph's Dependable Jeweler, in upstate NY. They had an entire line of store branded watches.
