Very nice! The case is in outstanding shape too; no discernible wear in the goldfill. That is quite uncommon on this style watch.

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me

Love it. Easily one of Gruen's most unconventional designs of the time. I can't really think of any other watch company trying this ribbon lug look.

Nice one! I've always liked that model.
