This unusual fancy Gruen Precision keeps good time and is in Excellent condition. The beautiful textured bezel is 10K rolled gold plate and the back, stainless steel. The dial features raised silver toned markers with the unusual sub-second display that partially obscures the 6. This model came in yellow and white gold. This is the less common white gold version.
The watch is in Excellent condition — clearly only worn for special occasions. Note that the watch case and dial are so reflective it is hard to get a clean photo. (The dark spots you see in some of the photos are reflections, not issues on the surface of the watch.) The crown is signed “Gruen.” The crystal is plastic and without scratches. We’ve added a very nice new old stock Speidel twist-o-flex watch band that nicely compliments the case.
The watch is powered by the Gruen 17 jewel 202 movement and is running strong and keeping excellent time. This is a small watch by modern standards and would work equally well for men or women. The case measures 22.2 mm by 26.9 mm (not counting the lugs or the stem).
Included with this watch is a vintage plastic Gruen watch case and the original Gruen outer box. Both the case and the box show some wear but are in good shape for their age. This watch makes a perfect gift for the fan of retro timepieces.
The service history of this watch is unknown and it has not been serviced while in our possession. While the watch is keeping very good time right now, you will probably want to have a jeweler clean, oil, and adjust the watch to get the greatest accuracy and the longest enjoyment from your vintage watch.
