Help to ID this pendant Gruen please

Thanks for looking, all information gratefully received thanks. Seems to be green enamel, glass back case. I cannot see any number but I haven't opened the case as I have no experience with watches and do not want to damage it.

It is a Gruen Geneve, so it is a watch from teh Gruen European sales organisation. They had their own models which started to sell in the 50s. There is not much known about these watches, there have only been a few ads in European papers. Only a few models made it to the US market, most fanous the Super G or Airflight.
Your watch does not seem to have a US import marking (GXC) which usually was stmaped on the balance cock. So I assume your watch was not sold in the US or it is later than 1967. But I would think that it is early 60s...
The movement looks like a FEF movement, nothing Gruen used in the US as long as they produced watches in Switzerland.
