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 octagon design.
The watch houses an early Guild 179 caliber, running well on 15 jewels with sub seconds. It is cased in an elegant octagon shaped 14K white gold filled case with enamel filled decorated bezel and sides, fantastic Art Deco design! The watch has a good original mineral crystal and an original crown.
The dial is a factory original hard enamel dial 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 35mm from top lug to bottom lug.
Attached to this watch is its original HADLEY stainless steel bracelet with folding, adjustable clasp that is engraved with shallow initials. It will fit a small wrist of up to 165mm.
