Interesting. I just know that font from Elgin dials, but I suppose perhaps Gruen used it too. Another possibility - I usually see that odd font on NOS Elgin dials. It's never been 100% clear to me whether these are in fact from the Elgin factory, or aftermarket replacement dials made by a third party. If that's the case, maybe similar styles were made for more than just Elgin.
