Okay, this one's a big ask, and not expecting that anybody just has one lying around. But you never know until you ask.

I'm looking for an 877. Condition is not important as long as it's complete enough to be brought back to life. A dial and hands would be a big bonus, but not a deal breaker. And I would also be interested in a complete watch with a hopelessly shot case. Thanks!

I am consistently in awe of the prices these techniquadrons bring in. I wonder how many of these get cannibalized every year towards a Prince. When I see ones like this with astounding bids I can't help but think there is something else at play here besides Gruen collectors.
Worthy mission you have embarked on, afire, good luck, I love these watches but may never own one, oh well.

Whoa! The wear marks on that one, someone sure adored it to death. ;-)

Am I correct in assuming you have an awesome case you're trying to fill? If so, do please share!

If you'd consider it awesome, I got my hands on a very clean (possibly never used [no service marks, dings or dents, just a little storage scuffing]) Alpina-Gruen sterling case.

And now the torture begins. Patience is not my strong suit, so I will probably not have a sound night's sleep until I either source a movement/dial/hands or sell it.

That is quite a score, nicely done! Here's hoping that the rest of the parts come together for you.
