The mart was a good one. Saw lots of Gruen stuff. Didn't buy any of it however. I saw three Aegler duo-dialed Gruen's. most at one show ever. I was more focused on tools and trench style watches.

There was a reception at the NAWCC museum after the mart closed too. Got to wander in the back with the museum director. Saw this display, which I thought nice.

At the museum is also a mock jeweler's store. They've a number of items and watches in the jeweler's cabinets that were donated by Robert Gruen. Only thing that I took umbrage with is the display stated that Gruen introduced the Auto-wind in 1950. That's wrong. Otherwise a great museum.
