The History of Croton
Croton Watch Co., Inc. was founded in 1878, when there was not the plethora of watch companies as there are contemporarily. Each manufacturer labored to create the horological wonder of the century. Croton was a small manufacturer with the philosophy that precision, quality, style and value go hand in hand.The family-owned and operated business specialized in diamond weight high-end watches that sold to small jewelry boutiques throughout the United States. As Croton’s reputation grew, there was more and more demand for their high quality watches. Croton expanded its bejeweled line, as the discriminating tastes of their customer changed.

Croton Promise of Excellence
There is a Croton Watch for just about any occasion. From 18kt gold diamond studded automatic collectibles to everyday watches in the current season’s most fashionable colors and styles. From production through after sales service, Croton stands behind its product. This is the same attention to detail that has been winning the wrists of millions of Americans since 1878. You will see the same high standards exemplified by each of our timepieces in high end department stores as well as fine jewelry establishments. Each Croton Watch carries an unprecedented lifetime warranty on its movement, and the Customer Service Department prides itself on a turn around time of ten days.
