Hi and welcome to this forum!

This appears to be the 1941 Logan model. The name belongs to the base model sold with a leather strap. With the more expensive metal expansion band it was called the Lucian and a third model based on the same case was called the Stanford. It had a luminous dial and hands though.

Here are my two Logan / Lucians, the pink gold one also a 1941 built watch, the yellow one with altered hands has a 1945 production date. The model was available from October 1941 until end of 1947.

I should have a stem for you and a crown (not original).

Thank you for your effort. A Gruen Logan it is then!
For the stem and the crown, I already found a source (complete movement with stem and crown), but I will have to see how good that is. So I will keep your offer in mind.

I got the watch finally, and it applaus in good condition. The gamble to buy me a spare movement for parts was right, because of a broken balance. And a spare stem and crown was also available. I have to do some work on Thatcher, because the stem is a bit too long.
But the movement is ticking again, and quite good. Only the amplitude is a bit low.

Looking good! Others may have advice on the amplitude, as I understand these hairsprings can be tricky.
