They are indeed Hen's teeth! Getting harder and harder to find. I just purchased a circus lot of Gruen M/S, and hoping to get, wishing, drooling, praying, that a few 117-119 show up. I have not forgot about those watches either. I will eventually pay them off, and hopefully take care of the debt. Thanks again GaryM!!! The other problem is that I have this 119 that was dropped, and shattered the 3rd wheel jewel. (I didn't drop it) I replaced the bridge with a 117 and it worked like a charm. However, there seems to be a problem with end shake in the balance assembly, and trying to either shim under the base, or may have to re-staff it. This is a gorgeous watch, 18k, and near mint. This belongs to a customer, and I want nothing more that to return this watch completely healthy.

People you thought were your best friends will stab you in the back to your face!

Love them anyway.
