I am currently looking for a replacement crystal for my 1927 Gruen Guild OS 71. I am having a tough time. Any suggestions at all would be appreciated! Thanks!

I just purchased a bunch of NOS odd ball Gruen glass. Let's see a pic!

I have also been on the lookout for an original silk grosgrain ribbon band. So hard to find! If anyone has any recommendations to find one..... Smile

That's a lovely watch. I have a few OS crystals but after checking I am sorry to say I don't have anything that comes close to that.

I think I have your crystal in glass. The basic measurements are 23.5mm X 14.4mm . Give yours a quick check and see if that will work.
