Please Help Identify This Watch

#1 Post by NotSleepy » Tue Dec 04, 2018 8:53 am

Hello To Everyone,

I've been collecting watches for several years but this is the first Gruen I've bought.
I've searched the site but I haven't been able to find one like this one.
I know it's a Curvex Precision but it looks to have more of a curve then the one's I'm seeing.
Please excuse the pictures I took them in a hurry with my phone and the lighting was poor.

Thanks for your time and help.

Hard to tell from the poor photos and without any view from the inside, but this could be the Curvex Chandler, one of the first "Curvametric" caliber 370 watches by Gruen.

It was available from 1949 to 1951.
But this is just a guess based on the photos, needs to be confirmed by mor info from the inside of the watch.

I will try to take the back off and get a few pictures of the movement. Here's a few more of the watch.
Thanks for the response.
