1928-29 Gruen

Post by kevco » May 6th 2016, 1:21pm

CA 119 Quadron movement. Pictures are from seller. With box and papers. Dial will probably be sent for re-finish.

I believe this my oldest wrist watch. The dial is quite tarnished. I believe I am going to spend the $200 or so for a service and dial refinish. This what I paid originally. What do you guys think?

I think it's a good idea. Regardless of the market value of a restored watch, the cost is not too much, and another bit of horological history will be preserved.

Very cool watch.
The guy in the ad appears to be quite the dandy.

Agree with you on this. The watch would definitely look great with a tasteful restoration.

That is very nice. The watch with the box and papers makes for one fine piece of history. You hit it out of the park. Well done, kevco.

Judging by the pics they did a fantastic job, at a great price. I'm glad you had this done. I'm always happy when an old machine is restored and put back to work. Well done!
