Circa 1934 Gruen Import 221. Stainless steel (Guildite) Swiss case, FEF 130 movement modified with a duo-dial module. Freshly serviced and running like a top for the first time in the six years I've owned it, fitted with a NOS period strap.

Very nice Greg, and a stunning engraved case. Interesting how the printing carries on over the edge of the dial and down into the recessed seconds dial section. Is that dial original?

Thanks Grumpy and Pat. I'm feeling better every day. Stress test next week and I dropped ten pounds. Today I wore the square Elgin automatic. Love the rose gold Elgin DeLuxe Grumpy.
