Hello ChiTownVintageNewbie!

Can I just call you CTVN? I'm guessing that you are from Chicago. I just moved x-country after living in Chicago for 18 years. Mostly Logan Square or Uptown. Anyway, welcome to the forum! You have a nice looking watch that you are offering.

If I might offer some advice for your sale, the movement photo as Jenneke suggests will help. However, this one looks like a strap 366 though there is some inconsistency between yours and the image in Bruce Shawkey's collectors guide, mostly the hands. That strap model contains a cal 400c. The movement photo will confirm this. Since "newbie", is part of your handle, you should be aware that an appraised value is what you would likely need to spend to replace an item acquired through the retail market. I'd recommend that you search eBay and other watch-related sale sites, for similar watches (movement, case style and unserviced) to garner an idea of the market value for your watch. This should give you an idea of the offers you might receive. Please don't take my unsolicited advice as "poo-pooing" on you or your offer of sale. My hope is to help you realize a good sale, whether it is through this site or elsewhere. I also hope that watches are an avocational interest for you and that you will stick around and share your collection as it expands with more Gruen's.

Warmest regards
JackW
