Is it proper that this watch would have a signed Gruen crown?

What watch :roll: ?
I don't see any watch. Got any pictures?

Not all watch manufactures used signed crowns.

Yes, it should originally have had a "G" signed crown...

I appreciate the info. I'll now look for a "G" signed crown for it. THANK YOU!

I thought the "G" crowns were the later version and the early watches had the "Gruen" signed crown. None of the kits I have from Gruen have "G" crowns in them.

Mike, you should be right with coerrecting me. I did not pay attention when the switch from "Gruen" to "G" happened. What I meant was that the crown should at least have been signed, so the crown on the photo is definitely not the original one.

This is a little outside my usual era, but I would expect most 311 and 330 Curvexes to have unsigned crowns. It may or may not be the original crown (looks about right to my eyes), but I doubt the original crown was signed.

Thanks all for the discussion. I guess an original ad for this watch, one that showed the crown would be the defining anser but likely such an ad does not exist. Thanks again.
