Excellent all 10kt yellow gold filled case made by Wadsworth measures 43 long lug tip to lug top, by 29mm wide not including crown. Personalized engraving on back has been buffed off. Wadsworth case is stamped 370 600 on inside which dates to 1948 year of production. Excellent original dial. Replacement crown. 17J Caliber 370 Curvex movement winds and sets perfectly, keeps time to within 2 min/day but not known when last serviced. The 370 was the last of Gruen Curvex movements, introduced in 1948 and used well into the 1950s. The "Baron" reaches the "magical length" of at least 42mm long that Curvex collectors desire, and also has a substantial curve to the case. Finished with an 18mm tan leather strap.
