Sorry Mike but I believe Cary is correct. Import 255 was a Guildite case and to the best of my knowledge no gold or gold filled versions were produced by Gabus Freres . There are similar cases made in the USA that were gold filled but they were never used in the Pan American series. In this particular case the seller has assembled a watch of all Gruen components however Gruen never produced one like it. As to the Barnum reference, the saying "A sucker is born every minute" is attributed to him.
