  4. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I'm new to the forum, as well as to the world of better wristwatches. I prefer the classic lines found in vintage watches. One note before going further ... I'm one of those with incredible skin acidity, and can kill a base-metal back or case with no effort. I like the Gruen Curvex...

    I rescued this lot from a local junk shop. Lots of little, gold, Art Deco ladies watches. I figure someone will give them the love they deserve. Unless stated, assume they are not running and need work. Add $5 shipping to any or all. Timex Eletric - $10 - looks pretty decent, original band...

    Hi, I've recently purchased this Gruen Precision Autowind and I don't know much about it. It's in good condition and keeps good time (around -4 seconds/day.) The info I have so far is that it's a "N 580 SS made in France." The movement says it's a "Felsa 4000n" but that's all the info I have...

    I found a nice Gruen 462 recently, but the dial was a nightmare. Not only is all the text and finish gone, but someone scrawled the numbers on it with a ballpoint pen. o| I prefer original dials in nearly all cases, but ballpoint numbers is a bit much. Does anyone have an image of what such...

    Up for sale is a rare vintage Gruen LED watch, for parts. Cosmetically, the watch is in great shape. Buttons push nicely, don't stick. Crystal shows no scratches. Band is original, with signed Gruen-signed clasp. However, the watch does not function properly, only partially displaying the...
  12. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I bought a 34 mm Gruen Precision N510 for a few dollars. It was in bad shape. I gave it a COA, polished the case, and have ended up finding it oddly appealing on the wrist. But the dial is in bad, bad shape. Missing text, flaking paint, exposed base metal, splotchy tarnishing---this is less...

    BOTH SOLD, BOTH SOLD These two were my foray into the world of American / Swiss vintage tanks from the Art Deco era. In retrospect I am staying with mid-century chronographs, so my loss is your gain. 1. A Gruen 500 Curvex from the 1930s, conaruma hairspring, grade 500, 17 jewels, 10K yellow...

  16. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi all, I found two antique ladies watches in one of my heaters last night, crazy right? one is a Hamilton and the other a Camero. Looking at the styles they appear to date from the 1920's-1940's. I believe I found the Hamilton one online selling in the $600 range, the other is a complete...

    Here's a couple of cool finds at the flea market last week end, both work great and keep excellent time. Any info on those would be most appreciated!

    Here is another piece from my personal collection, a Gruen Precision with a 17 jewel movement, autowind & calender systems. I even have the original Gruen storage box. This is a very accurate piece, and measures 33mm in diameter. I believe the "Ra SWISS Ra" dial markings means it had a Radium...
