There is a lot to be said about timeless classics. A well-cut black suit will be as fashionable in twenty years as it is today. A vintage 1964 Grand Prix looks as impressive coming down the street nowadays as it did when it first rolled off the line. The first Clash album will be blowing the minds of teenagers around the world for years to come.

But not everything constantly stays in vogue. For all the things that stay in style over the years there are ten times as many fads that come and go.

The people at Croton Watches know that being up to speed on the latest trends is just as important as designing a timepiece that is always in style. They fuse the classic and the contemporary by designing one-of-a-kind watches that are small works of art. Here are a few examples of Croton Watches that will have you looking sharp for years to come.

Croton Men’s CX Quartz Rubber Strap Watch

The Croton CX is a handsome and affordable timepiece that is a great wristwatch for your afternoon workout or for hanging by the poolside. It has a silver-tone bezel with Arabic numerals at the tens and index markers at the fives.

The dial of the Croton CX is available in color options that include blue, orange, red, and yellow/orange. There are two lines that run down the middle of the textured black rubber strap that coordinate with the dial color.

Arabic numerals mark the 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 hour positions and luminous round index markers denote the rest. This watch is fully capable of keeping up with your busy lifestyle.

Croton Men’s Ermex Swiss Quartz Diamond Accent Lizard Strap Watch

Croton also has stylish watches that will add a little razzle dazzle to a night out on the town. The exotic features of the Ermex are more than enough to make your evening ensemble stand out.

It has a textured stainless steel case that is available in rose-tone, gold-tone, or silver-tone. All versions come equipped with a genuine lizard leather strap. The rose version comes with a dark brown strap, the gold case features a light brown strap, and the silver one has a black strap.

The dial itself is white and has a design that makes the face appear spherical. Diamond accent index markers sparkle at all the hour positions. This watch looks best when paired with a steamy Havana night.

Croton Men’s or Women’s Contraband II Stainless Steel Watch

This unisex option from Croton will class up a nice outfit on any man, woman or child. It has a plain black dial with the word “Croton” printed in gold-tone and a small diamond at the 12:00 position. There is also a date window located conveniently at 3:00.

The gold-tone stainless steel bracelet of this timeless timepiece appears to blend right into the matching round case. This watch makes a great gift to any person who has an appreciation for classic simplicity.

Croton Men’s Roulette Stainless Steel Leather Strap Watch

Wear a little bit of Monte Carlo on your wrist with Croton’s Roulette wristwatch. Between the silver-tone stainless steel case and the black dial lies a miniature roulette wheel. By pressing the function pusher you can actually send a small LED light (imitating the roulette ball) spinning around!

On the dial of the Roulette there are Arabic numerals denoting the hours at 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00. The Croton name and logo rest at 12:00. This watch connects comfortably to your hand via a leather strap with a crocodile pattern. The white stitches make for a nice contrast.

Beyond being a beautiful piece of artistry, the Roulette makes for an interesting conversation piece and potentially a fun time with your friends.

Croton Men’s Pave Crystal Patent Leather Strap Watch

The crown-shaped Czech crystals that surround the bezel of this luxurious timepiece truly make it fit for a king. These crystal accents come in color options of bronze, gunmetal or white. They even run in concentric circles to the middle of the dial, giving this watch a look all its own.

Japanese Miyota 2035 movement powers this distinctive watch. This keeps the gunmetal seconds, minute, and hour hands ticking away. The strap of this watch is made out of genuine leather. The white and gunmetal dials come equipped with a black strap. The Bronze version has a brown one.

Despite the delicate and distinguished look of this watch, it is surprisingly durable. It is actually water resistant at up to 10 meters. That means it can stand up to an afternoon of snorkeling, but probably not a deep-sea dive.

The beauty of all of Croton watches is that even though many of them have flashy, modern highlights, they will still look good in the years to come. Update your current timepiece and keep it classy for years to come with a watch from Croton.

Does black rubber floor mats affect cooling in cars?

My cars presently have the default black rubber floor mats that they were shipped with. I heard that these mats heat up more and hence reduce cooling during summers. Is this true? If so, what floor mats should I replace these with.

I am in India and the cars in question are WagonR and Maruti 800. The second one has an AC that’s is quite low on performance.

No, since they are on the floor, and really don’t get direct sunlight on them, unless your car is a convertible, and the top is down during the day. Floor mats don’t influence the cooling effects of the A/C system.
