1941 Gruen "Huntsman"

After going through most all the posts, and not finding anything for the "Huntsman" model, I just figured I'd ask.

Re: Playboy Pics.

I'm not so sure that this is a "Playboy" watch. According to the ads I have for 1948 and 49 "Playboy" are showing a side engraved bezel. Nothing for a "Plain" bezel. BTW, I own the watch in the pic.
