Product Detail

The Gruen Watch Company is a famous American watchmaker, founded in 1894 in Cincinnati. It constructed the Timehill Building, featured in much of its early advertising. The company later opened a factory in Biel Switzerland. The Gruen philosophy was to adhere to the spirit of the old guilds. Gruen made beautiful ladies and gent’s watches with very high quality movements, often using the same as those used by Rolex in the early part of the 20th century. In fact Gruen and Wilsdorf and Davis (the Rolex founders) were well known to each other. The company was successful for many years but got into difficulties in the 1950's. Along with a number of other watch companies. Gruen was broken up and sold off in pieces in 1958. The Time hill Building is now owned by Rolex. The Gruen name is still used today on quartz watches with Japanese and Swiss movements

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this.  If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
