Ahhah! So it was you who got that one. I was watching it too. Glad it went to someone who would appreciate it!

Anyone know something about this watch? It is a vintage Gruen, I believe it is a 60's model 511? It has American Airlines spelled out, it says it is water and shock resistant and anti-magnetic on the back, and it has what appears to be a judges gavel just under the 12 on the dial, it is a precision 17 jewel, with a unique 6 and 9, and radium hands and numeral marks.

Can you post a picture? Maybe somebody can ID it without a picture, but it never hurts (and we like seeing them).
