MikeTheWatchGuy's site is back up. However, I am not sure you will find what you are looking for in dating the case as MKWS indicates. IF you do have a case style number you are certainly into the "roll over" period. Mike's dating method is pretty much geared toward watches that are in the period of the actual Gruen Watch Company. My bet this watch is after the liquidation of the company (ca. 1958) and movements as well as cases were sourced otherwise then the heyday of the company. Things like serial numbers on movements and case style numbers fell to the wayside over time.

1960 is a good and well reasoned guess based on the few facts known. A better date might be determined if an advertisement could be found. But with such a nice NOS watch (looks like it with the tag there) check the box for the receipt.
