Gruen Guildsman
Model name: Quadron Annapolis
Period/date: 1930
Gender: Men's
Case Maker: Wadsworth
Case Material: 14 karat gold-filled "reinforced with extra gold"
Case Serial:
Case Style no: 123 108
Caliber: 123
Bracelet: Original matching gold-filled bracelet
Other info: Pictured in the 1929 Guild Book. This example is fitted with the "two-tone" (gilt bridges on rhodium plated pillar plate), showing milled spaces on the barrel bridge where the adjustment data had been. This indicates post-1930 production, as the US tariff was raised to $1.00 per adjustment in that year.

Cary...first time I've seen an Annapolis. I love it!...a great looking watch and that band puts it over the top! It reminds me of the golden gate bridge.
