Gruen Veri-Thin Import
Excellent condition all Guidite (stainless steel) screwback case measures 32mm wide by 38.5mm long lug to lug. Excellent original black dial. Good crystal and winding crown. Gruen 15-jewels Caliber 411 movement sets and winds perfectly. Keeps time to within 2 min/day but not known when last serviced. Stainless steel stretch comfort band "snaps" into itself for easy adjustment and comfort. Most Gruen watches were cased and timed at the Gruen factory in Cincinnati, with most cases coming from Wadsworth. However, Gruen also imported many complete watches from its factory in Switzerland when the situation was advantageous. These are "imports" by Gruen collectors, and this is one of them. Guildite was not made here in the states, and you'll also notice that the usual two-digit case reference number is not stamped on the case on this one. Interesting piece.
