Gruen

Gruen Precision Vintage 1960's James Bond 007 Pre-Owned Mens Watch....33mm

$586.00 USD

 In its glory years from the 1920s through the 1940s, the Gruen Watch Company of USA & Switzerland was one of the leaders in wristwatch design and quality, even collaborating with Rolex (e.g., the Aegler movement duo-dial doctors watch) from its factories in Switzerland. Prior to WWII, Gruen was better known in the USA than Rolex, which at that time was concentrating on the British and Commonwealth countries (hence lots of early Rolexes coming out of Australia and the UK). Hans Wilsdorf and Gruen were friends and neighbors in Switzerland (their factories were just yards away), and even agreed to market their watches as Rolex Gruen in Europe, but the Great Depression prevented this.

VINTAGE WATCHES ARE GENERATING MORE INTEREST OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS SINCE COLLECTORS REALIZE AND APPRECIATE THEIR QUALITY. THE GOOD LOOKING VINTAGE ONES ARE BEING SNAPPED UP AND ADDED TO COLLECTIONS AND ARE BEING WORN. THESE VINTAGE WATCHES ARE A BARGAIN WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE COST OF PRODUCING A COMPARABLE WATCH WITH A HIGH GRADE MOVEMENT. THIS IS A VERY NICE EXAMPLE OF A VINTAGE SWISS WATCH WHICH WOULD MAKE AN INTERESTING EXAMPLE FOR ANY COLLECTION OR JUST BE FUN TO WEAR AS YOUR PERSONAL TIMEPIECE
 
BECAUSE OLDER, VINTAGE, WRISTWATCHES WERE MADE SMALLER THAN WATCHES MADE TODAY, MEN OR WOMEN CAN WEAR THIS AND WOULD LOOK FABULOUS
 
Vintage watches may gain or lose a small amount of time per day as they do not keep quartz accuracy. Also, because most vintage watches being offered are between 40-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
 
A Word About Mechanical Watches:  All mechanical watches, whether manual or automatic wind, will need periodic servicing simply due to the friction of its moving parts. All of our watches have been tested and serviced if needed. I time all watches for at least 24 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy I won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund
 
The accuracy of a mechanical watch depends on wrist movement, watch position, frequency of winding, and maintenance 
 
Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned wristwatches. Have seals and gaskets checked by a watchmaker before submerging in water, swimming, or showering
 
IT IS MY HOPE THAT ALL OF MY ITEMS WILL GO TO PEOPLE WHO WILL ENJOY & APPRECIATE THEM. I WILL GLADLY ACCEPT A RETURN AND/OR TAKE CARE OF A PROBLEM IF I MAKE A GROSS ERROR IN THE DESCRIPTION. IF I HAVE MADE NO GROSS ERRORS, THE ITEM IS A FINAL SALE. THIS IS MERELY DUE TO THE ITEMS BEING ANTIQUES, VINTAGE, OR PRE-OWNED. WATCHES ARE SOLD AS-IS, AND AS DESCRIBED, WITH NO WARRANTY
