empressissi™ is pleased to offer this early and sought after Art Deco GRUEN wrist watch for men - a unique model from the late 20s in white gold filled case with a classic Art Deco design ref 115-46.
The watch houses an early quality 115 caliber, running well on 15 jewels with sub seconds. It is cased in a unique 3 pieces case in distinctive Art Deco design with decorative frame in cushion shape. The watch has a mint magnifying crystal and a good crown.
The dial is a factory original hard enamel with Art Deco style numerals with recently restored luminous filling, carefully hand painted in our atelier with non-toxic Super-Luminova™ material. The same material was applied to the original set of decorated skeleton hands as well.
This Gruen watch measures 24mm side to side (excluding crown) and 33mm from top lug to bottom lug and is modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is its original DuroBrite stainless steel bracelet with a deployment clasp in fine condition, will fit a wrist of up to 175mm comfortably.
