Gruen watch information

#1 Post by sadie » Fri May 27, 2016 10:05 pm

Hi All,

New to the forum, found this in a local jewellers for 150USD, was wondering if anyone knew much about it. The only ID is on the back of the case - 455 709. Can't open the case so I've no idea what the mechanism markings are. Hope someone can help.


Thanks

The numbers on the back don't help with ID or date. But Gruen Geneve on the dial points to 1960s, I believe. The styling looks like late 1960s to early 1970s.

Nice watch!
The Gruen Geneve brand was the more trendsetting and higher priced segment started in the late 50s and exisiting to around 1970. Case style, hands, blue dial, 25 jewels all together I would agree with afire that this puts the watch to 1969 plus minus three years.
The inside of the case back normally tells most about Gruens, but the movement as well. Opening the back should definitely help.
