This a 1958 Gruen 'Eldorado'. I've only seen a couple in 5 years of searching on eBay & I bought both of them.

Did you buy mine then? I hope so. It deserved a good home.

I sold it on ebay two or three years ago - I felt that it was too big for my wrist, and anyway I couldn't bear to wear out that strap...
