Howdy Gruenites!

I will be selling of 95% of my collection. No, not getting out, but the truth is??? I am flat broke, I have about $1,000.00 between me and the streets....no BS here. My demise is your surprise. I will list what I have in the ensuing days, and will put pix of the nice stuff, and show bulk items of cases, parts, pieces.
I came off of active duty (now in the guard) and lo and behold, the amount od mandatory deductions, illnesses as of late in the family, accidents, and whatever else can be thrown at a family, has happened. Good time to pick up some good stuff for reasonable prices.

I'm so sorry to hear that times are tough right now. I hope that with selling only a few select items you'll find yourself in a much better position

Tomas,

I'm after a few things you might have. Though are you still planning to do watch repair? Welcome to regular civie status.

Hola Tomas! Very sorry to hear this news. Hopefully things will sort themselves out quickly and all will be better again! As Jack asked, you're still going to do some watch repairs??

Permanencia bien mi amigo!

Not good news there ticker. List you the ones in order of what you really want to keep so I can buy them and give back to you later.

PM me if things start to get hairy.


Aqualung, my friend, don't you start away uneasy You poor old sod, you see it's only me

I love you guys! I'm just really transparent with everything. Yep, still doing watch repairs. I have a ton of 157 movements, and all manner of other stuff from the 20s-40s. I suppose I could list then all, but photos are going to be impossible. Maybe I could do a "bulk" shoot? I'll share a few photos today. (home recovering from foot surgery)

I don't ever want to get out of watchdom.....ever!!!! I am at an impasse right now, and don't know how to get out. So, in order to help and provide for my family, I am selling just about everything I have. I even had a guy ask me to sell him my most recent completion. My Pan Am! Do you think $275.00 is too much? it is fully restored with an authentic alligator strap and runs excellent. I've seen them for far more, but this is a new Gruen enthusiast. Your thoughts?

Please go to "Model Identification" for "some" of the photos.

Tomas, $275 for a restored Pan-Am is not asking 'too much'....

I have a good running CAL 115. What would be a good asking price for the movement? Buyer is a Gruenite, a fellow in the watch world, and I would like to be fair to him. Your thoughts?

Hi Matty,
I am so sorry, but I have never delved in to the Curvex. I'll look to see if I have a 330 movement though. Thanks for
the encouraging words!!
