Product Detail

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

I am a watch collector as well as a buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches

I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition
This offering is similar to the first Bond watch seen on screen strapped to Sean Connery at the gaming tables in Dr No (1962), and it may have been the actor’s own. And those who have looked closely have also detected its quiet appearance in From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), You Only Live Twice (1967) and Diamonds Are Forever (1971)

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

Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned watches unless otherwise stated in the listing

Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification

A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer

You will be pleasantly surprised and receive many compliments when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch

Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
