I am search of a Gruen "Pentagon" pocket watch crystal. Yes, the crystal is pentagon shaped....not like others that have a pentagon case with a round dial. PM me if you have one for sale.

Kind Regards,

Tom

OK I'll take a look and ask my Gruen friends here in the area. I'll give you a call...;-)

Sorry for the blurred picture, but looks like there are two kinds. Can you give me some measurement?

I have a guy up on the island that is looking. I'm going to a collector meeting on Sunday too. Folks also tell me there are several people who can make these crystals from scratch. That might be the next step if we cannot find one.

Do you still need a pentagon crystal? I have pentagon crystals. Are you looking for Verithin or Ultra Verithin size?
