Garagesale Find Vintage Gruen Women's Watch

#1 Post by iKokomo » Mon Apr 25, 2016 6:54 am

I found this watch at a garagesale from $1 USD and I was wondering if I could find out more about it.
This was the one nicer watch among all the cheaper ones. It is a Women's Gruen Precision 17 Jewels Swiss Made with 10K R. G. P. Bezel.
Unfortunately, when wound up it does not seem to work.

Thanks a lot!

Hi,

you are right, the Gruens are always the nicer ones :-)

Most that can be told about the watch the pictures already tell. A ladies one piece bracelet watch with 10k gold plated bezel and bracelet and stainless steel back. 17 jewel precision movement, Swiss made.
What the pictures do not tell is, that the watch can be dated to 1972, had a list price of $99.95 and was sold for half the suggested retail price at $49.95 into the Christmas market in that year. So I guess it has been a 1972 Chrstmas present to a beloved woman...

That's all I can tell, I have not seen a name for this watch yet.

Barney
