Hey, it works!

This time two pictures of a classic Gruen from the late 1950s/early 1960s. It's hard to say exactly when the watch was made, since all records from Gruen were destroyed in a fit of utter stupidity as new management took over the company in the late 1960s, making it very, very hard to collect Gruens with any sort of confidence as to when the watch was made.

Gruen is a true piece of american horology. Will finish this tomorrow, time to sleep... Posted by Picasa

Great looking Gruen John.
The bezel is V similar to the one used by Rado on the early(late 50s)President models.
