I'm sure others have noticed a New Old Stock Gruen up for sale and ending soon. Don't want to knock sellers specifically so I'll just say that if you're eyeing a Gruen with a tag claiming to be New Old Stock, you might want to check the corners of the case for wear Smile

Heck, you might even want to check the tag matches the model of the watch.

For the watch I'm looking at the tag doesn't match the watch so be careful out there!

These are the kinds of listings that are just plain sad to see as someone is clearly being more than a little deceptive

Unfortunately its their way of business with some vendors on eBay.

Time, even vintage time, goes too fast for my tastes.
