3 New Gruens .......

#1 Post by salleh » Fri Mar 22, 2013 12:04 pm

.....Very busy yesterday ....scored 3 Gruens /....the first is a rose gold Curvex.....it's a 440, but you can't have everything !...and rose gold is a big seller .....

the next is a nice black dialed one from the 50s or 60s I do love those black dials ......


Image


and this one ...it looks older than it might be ...and automatic, but that's an old-fashioned looking dial ....

What a long strange trip it's been......

Thanks guys ..and I do think they're all orginal dials .....and that rose gold one is in great condition ...just enough imperfections so that you can tell it's not a re-dial.....

Can't help with the middle one, but the top is a Curvex Trooper and the bottom is an Autowind Leader. If you search youtube, you might find an episode of the Walter Winchell show in which Sterling Hayden does a spot featuring the Autowind Leader.
