Unfortunately, I am not in a position to open the watch case back. I would have to have a professional do that.

The vintage watch dealer (FTA on Belmont may mean something to you as a former Chicagoan) said that he would charge me $750 to restore the Gruen watch back in the Fall of 2010, and that it would have a post-restoration value of $900. He offered to buy the watch for $50 at that time, but I did not think the offer was in line with the post-restoration value he quoted to me.
