Model name : Autowind Import 272
Type : Bumper automatic
Period/date : 1950
Gender : Male

Case Maker : na Swiss made
Case Material : Stainless steel with gold bezel
Case Serial : 14901B
Case Style no : na

Caliber : 460SS
Movement Maker : Gruen
Movement Serial: IG24322

Bracelet : It will get a leather strap Laughing

Other info : One of the few Gruens featuring a dial with roman numbers. It has the same movement and dial as the Autowind Sportsman (Import 296) as well as a two tone case. The only difference between the two cases as far as I can judge is that the Sportsman has a gold "cable" bezel instead of the plain one on the Import 272.
I have not been able to find a name for the Import 272, so any info is welcome.
