I have come across yet another brand new never been worn Gruen Watch from my local watch shop and am excited to hopefully learn what I can from you guys and gals!

That one is a Veri-Thin 'Marquis' likely from about 1948-49 and yes that is the correct original price tag according to Mike Barnett's Gruen Identification Guide, Vol #1.

Still here....

Curious... Is that a Wadsworth made case? Looking at the other tag.

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

It's always cool to see just how crisp these cases were when new.
