I picked a movement up on eBay just like this the other day. It’s in pieces but has the same alarm hand. Fun! Should only take me a year to figure out where everything goes Wink Found a silver 940 case for it on eBay as well. I’ll plate it gold even though it’s single cast with standard lugs. Should make a nice addition to the collection. Looks like everything is here but I don’t have any diagrams for the alarm portion. Trial and error, I suppose Sad

Man I love watches. Especially Gruen and their dials!

Sounds like a challenging job.

The venus version has a technical document, might help. 😉
