Gruen Pilgrim

1952; Sun, 02 January 2022 15:07

I bought a bag of watches at a flea market cheap. This one works. Seems to run good. I am checking if it keeps time or needs to be adjusted but it runs so I would assume at worst it needs a cleaning and time adjust. But I can not find out what model this is and if there is any value. Thanks for any help.

Gruen Curvex Royal 311

Sat, 06 November 2021 16:22

Hi All,

Purchased my first Gruen wristwatch! Looking for confirmation/completion of what I think I was able to identify below from here and other resources. Any other info you think might be helpful about this watch is appreciated too! I had a tough time finding much searching the "260" style number from the caseback, but the thread on here titled "Is this a curvex from 1936?" ID#12489 (sorry can't post links yet!) was helpful in identification. I'm also interested in what bands folks have chosen for the curvex, I'm not thrilled with expansion bands in general, this one seems to emphasize the narrow dimension rather than the long one. I've heard band choice can make a huge impact on these watches. Thanks!
