Hi Jack! Thanks for the heads up. Indeed. I have trolled a few post in the past. Great forum. I first got interested in Gruen from the Bond movie. Great history and greatly under appreciated as well as Elgin. Cheers!

Hi,
I am very interested in buying this watch, but unfortunately I have not yet received a reply to my messages. If the watch has already been sold, please just let me know.

It sounds like it probably sold in October. On a side note, I always find it somewhat amusing that one of the most valuable Gruen models comes from the era past its prime and has almost nothing to do with the the core Gruen heritage.

Suppose the word diver and the black turning bezel has something to do with it. A matter of fashion.

Yep, the diver market is truly its own thing. I guess it's the fact that a single Gruen model would be so desirable in that market is a little perplexing to me. But being a 1920s and 1930s dress watch enthusiast, there's not much reason that I would understand that market.
