I am reducing parts of my Gruen collection (refocusing/making room). A number of SemiThins are on the chopping block.

740 19 jewels. Two-tone case, very good shape. Good balance, broken mainspring.
758 16 jewels. Two-tone case, very good to excellent shape. Running. I doubt you'll ever see a nicer one.
756 15 jewels. WGF case, good. Fire damage but no rust. Balance distorted and out of poise due to heating. Runs for short periods.
756 17 jewels. GGF case, good. Very good guilloché dial with applied numbers. Running.
650 (850?) 17 jewels. Two-tone case, very good. Runs but doesn't set.
756 17 jewels. WGF case, very good. Near-perfect dial with applied numbers except that it is missing the 5. Not running, broken balance.
740 19 jewels. WGF case, fair. Dial needs to be re-printed. Good balance, broken mainspring.

Pictures available on request, or you could find them on a certain website. Make me an offer!

The San Diego Watch & Clock show is happening January 26-28 at the La Mesa Community Center. A student at class last week said he is going and got a $89 round trip ticket with Alaska, for us here on the west coast that's a steal! I might do the "Fly by Night" thinggy, arrive there with a backpack and leave the same day. These shows have been pretty good in the past. https://net.nawcc.org/NAWCC/Events/Event_Display.aspx?EventK ey=MT23SCR
