Gary that's a really nice watch. It would have been a nice watch to exchange as a gift but only to a select few. I would think there only about a half dozen members who could repair that watch into running condition. Sometimes I think it's easy for those that possess that ability to forget that most of us can't do anything with such a watch except put it in another drawer. So I would suggest to you that why should I be enthusiastic about another Gruen that needs repair when I have dozens already needing repair. Personally I would appreciate some postings on how to do some basic things like removing hands, cleaning the dial and case. I envy those that attend local meetings and actually learn something. I tried that and was disappointed to find that I was the only one there that had any interest in Wristwatches. They were all Clock and Pocket Watch people that had no interest in anything worn on the wrist and certainly not interested in anything with the name Gruen. So I guess what I am saying is if you want the membership to grow then some of you are going to have to find ways to educate the base so grow is possible.
