empressissi™ is pleased to offer this all original and well preserved GRUEN dress watch for men from the mid 30s, an interesting historic model of the great depression era, where lower-jeweled Swiss movements were imported to the US market and adjusted locally to offer a more economic option. The watch is in excellent working order and ready to wear!
The watch houses a 703 Gruen GUILD caliber running on 7 jewels which is an economy version of the prestigious series for the great depression era. It is cased in a classic 10K yellow gold filled case in classic Art Deco design in excellent shape with a mint mineral crystal and a good crown.
The dial was professionally restored in the past with the correct tone and print, featuring gold plated numerals and original set of hands.
This collectible GRUEN watch measures 24mm side to side (excluding crown) and 36mm from top lug to bottom lug and despite being designed for men, it is modest in size in today's standards.
Attached to this watch is a brand new genuine leather band in padded dark brown, 16mm wide, with an anti-allergic buckle in a matching tone.
