This men's Gruen wristwatch has dual dial styling and a stainless steel case back that reads GRUEN GUILDITE BASE METAL. The watch is gold-filled. The color is salmon/rose gold. The watch does not run, and needs total professional restoration. Selling "As Is".

Jack W and Gary M. were kind enough to assist with identifying the Gruen model name for the watch we have for sale:
There is a Princeton for 1939 listed in there. The Princeton from 1937 is more "art-deco" in design. This is likely the name associated with the strap # I gave earlier. Matches quite well [Jack W]. My bet says this is a Princeton, depicted in the 1939 ad on Ebay, 360725356528 [Gary M]. I am sure both assessments are "spot on".

In the Fall of 2010, a market value appraisal was performed by a well-known Chicago vintage watch dealer/restorer. The opinion given was that the watch was made in the late 1930s [most likely in 1937]. I have the appraiser's business card and the mechanical diagnostic test [print-out] performed on the watch.

See photos attached to this post. Make us an offer. Note: I am willing to pay the $3.00 postage (USPS First Class w/USPS Tracking)for a fair/reasonable offer. Must receive money order payment before watch is mailed. No Refund.
