So,actually, a heated debate I had with my Dad resulted in me finding this site and becoming a member. So it is fitting that this Fathers Day I honor my Dad with a gift of the model of Gruen we so hotly debated about. I figured I would show you guys here the custom box I made for my Dad.

This box contains every example of Gruen 25 jewel automatic that we argued about. One of which is my Dads original. Another a white minute track variation. And yet another working model that I purchased a vintage Spiedel band for. I sought for a made in USA band, which an excellent eBay vendor provided me with. Some Spiedels apparently are not made in the USA.....however this one was.

Now a little over a week ago I got a blank box from AC MOORE crafts,painted it and used fabric that I got a year ago from a surplus store. Thus making the box below for the Gruens I had bought for him.

Again, Happy Fathers Day!!
