The case detail on this vintage Gruen precision rectangular watch is unlike anything I have seen from them before. The rolled claw-like lugs give the watch a distinct Art-Deco appearance that few watches can match.
The all original black dial features gold Arabic numerals and the faintest of patina on the original black dial adds to the overall vintage charm of this unusual watch.
The signed Gruen gold filled case has been detailed and looks great.
The elongated barrel shaped Gruen caliber 355, 17 jewel movement was just serviced by my Rolex trained watchmaker and is keeping great time and functioning as it should. The watch is fitted with a genuine vintage style curved glass crystal.
This watch makes a statement on the wrist and adds a dimension of style that cannot be bought with anything else under $1000.
The watch measures 38 mm long, 23 mm wide at the lugs, 20 mm at the crown, and is presented on a black calf skin strap.
