Alpina Gruen 14K two-tone

I just acquired this dandy little Alpina Gruen. Case is 14K two-tone green and white. Movement is a Gruen 155.

Wow, what a beauty!
I have once psoted the Alpina Catalog pages (in the Watches from the Guild section, oh, yes, this was in the other Gruen forum...) and your watch is not exactly but almost in it. Yours would be a 71gw 155/205, a ladies watch, Hence the size...

Love it"

Hey Barney, thanks for the info! Do you have a date for your catalog?

Unfortunately I do not have a date for the catalog. I just can say that it is from the first half of the 30s.

Thank god it's a ladies watch. I read the title and saw who posted it and thought "oh, s***, time to scrounge up some cash." :lol:

Cool watch. That case has Weber written all over it. I'm guessing a 5-digit serial number on the back?
Real men wear small watches.
